Sweet Christmas Dreams

Once more Tuesday has rolled in like if we were on a time machine going fast forward! Yesterday was Halloween and we took the kids trick or treating but after about an hour of it they were ready to head back home. The weather was just right and it was fun seeing how Gavino my 3 year old kept on saying "Truco o Caramelo" which he picked up watching Dora. I couldn't help but giggle when the people giving the treats would ask...What?
Well being Tuesday means that there is a new challenge over at TOP TIP TUESDAY plus Samantha has a fun tutorial for you on making Background papers with Impressibilitie.
Our challenge this week is: Get inky making your own papers or background.

I must admit that my impressions are not as defined as I would have expected; most likely there needs to be more pressure when running it through my cuddlebug. Anywho it did the trick and I used some distressed inks to make the snowflake pattern be more visible. So without further delay here is my card!

I have used images from my Magnolia Fall kit; I am on a mission to use them all on my cards this holiday season. So today I have used 4! Yeah I know! 
Here is a little bit of a side view so you can see the detail on the embossed panel and all the distressed edges with the added stickles.
Here is the inside of the card where I have placed the sentiment, hanging mini Tilda and the leafs with little hearts. Also I have glimmer misted the inside using the same Impressibilitie as on the front.
Image was colored with Copics: Hair E27,35,31 Skin:YR01, E00,000, R20 Green: YG99,G82,40 
Reds: socks R59,27,22/ hearts R59,46,35 Dress: E31, YR30 Outline: E35,31,30, YR30
