Magnolia-licious Pink Christmas Challenge

I LOVED THIS CHALLENGE!  

Or should I say I loved how my card turned out?  LOL!  It took me about 4 hours to color this thing.  I KNOW!!  I'm soooo slow!  Sometimes I think the most time consuming part is actually picking your colors out but it was fun!! I thought these 2 images were so cute together.  Looks like the reindeer was a little escapee and Tilda went to grab him to take him back in.   Very much like my indoor cat.  LOL!   

I used "Tilda w/Little Rudolf" from the Christmas Story 2012 collection and paired it up with "Welcome to a Sweet Christmas" from the Sweet Christmas 2011 collection.  I was happy to color it up as I got it last year and never had a chance to until now.  I also used the new "Slender Firs" doohickey dies from Magnolia-licious.  I am just in love with these things!  They go well with the "Snowy Forest", which you'll see in my next project soon.  hee hee


Again I got to provide the inspiration picture for this challenge.  Funny thing about that!  I picked it in September thinking that some of the new Christmas papers coming out would have pink in them.  NOTHING!!  I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT!  But I finally found some digi papers from Bearly Mine Designs and used "Christmas Delight".  Very pretty!!


You should see all the PINK at the Magnolia-licious challenge blog.  EYE CANDY FOR SURE!!  Pop on over and take a peek and give the girls a little luv if you have time.  Again Diana will be giving away:


Also, you should see all the colored images at Magnolia-licious store.  Makes a big difference on seeing how an image might look after it's colored or maybe help in giving you and idea on how to color something if you're stuck.  

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
