Magnolia Christmas Bell

Finally, I had a little time to stamp. My dd decided she wanted to come home for the weekend, which took almost 8 hours of my time. Love her to pieces and glad to see her but I did miss my creation time. lol

 I love this bell by Magnolia. I suppose you could have a Tilda sit on it but I love it just the way it is. It is colored with copics with lots of different stickles around. The dp is from basic grey's blitzen collection. The poinsettias are from Hero Arts. The swirls are cut with the sizzix die. I saw on a challenge where anything goes but you had to be inspired by one of the dt members but I can't find the challenge - oh if I only had a brain. lol. Anyway I was inspired by the letter beads on the card so I decided to create some of my own. The beads I had were too large. So I wrote on the pez-a-doodle beads with copics. It does fit the Just Magnolia Challenge here to use beads. Here is a closer picture.

After much fussing as to placement on everything this is how it turned out. Hope you enjoy the card as much as I enjoyed creating it.
