Midway at Simply Magnolia-"Vintage"!!

Good Sunday morning dear friends!!

Today we are at the midway mark of our current challenge...which is "Vintage" Simply Magnolia!!  We are sponsored this challenge by the FABULOUS Live and Love Crafts!!!  Thank you once again to the wonderful Sandy!

Well I decided to get the "cards" for my "Besties" out of the I went with another clock so both of their "cards" would be similar!  This one is for Di who I have known literally my whole life...Di loves antiques, rummaging through stuff at a garage sale and most things "vintage" friend!!

Here is what I came up with this time...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
once again I used the Tim Holtz clock...clock face at the top right with game spinners as clock hands...
I covered the outside with gesso and then went over it with Tattered Angels "Cowboy" Glimmer Glaze for an antiqued look...
inside is a fire place with a tea light for the flame...
 this is Magnolia's "Chimney with Snow" (sorry can't remember which collection)...
the snow is liquid applique...
 this is "Pixie Tilda" from the Christmas Story 2012 collection...
I added ribbons to her hair...
 this one is "Tucked Tilda" and the "Merry Christmas" is also Magnolia...again I can't remember which collection...
 this is the insert before I put it in the clock...
I decorated my fireplace with Martha Stewart pine branches and berry beads...
 closer view...
 this is the side decorated and my tag to Di...
the leaves are made using the Magnolia Doo Hickey Club Kit #2...
