Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

It is time for the monthly Christmas blog hop with Magnolia Stamps. I love Christmas but not all the work that goes with it so this is perfect. I get some of my Christmas cards done early so I don't have that to do. If you want to start at the beginning go here. If you have started at the beginning and have come from here, Norma's fabulous blog you are on the right track. Here is my card:

This was one of my first Magnolia stamps and still one of my favorites. Tilda can be gotten from here. She is colored with distress inks. After that on the wings and dress I painted angel wings shimmerz. Adds just a bit of sparkle. Gold stickles are on the stars and halo. The crisscross on the paper is done by using the score-it-all. Then the pearls were added with glue dots. A ribbon tied into a bow and a flower added. The corner punches are from EK Success. 
Hope you are enjoying yourself on this blog hop. Your next stop is Robin's blog here. This card is also done for the grid challenge over at Stampacular Sunday Challenge here. And for the make it crafty challenge anything goes here.
