Midweek Magnolias #102 Flourishes

Good morning my dears,  It's time to let you know of the new challenge theme over at 

Midweek Magnolias

For the next fortnight we would love to see Flourishes on your creations.  

I've made a Criss Cross card only this time I've used a couple of small circular magnets on a belly band as my closure.  

Once again I've used sweet Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda from the Waiting For Christmas collection 2014, this time she has been coloured using  ShinHanArt markers and Derwent pencils for shading. 

Papers are a mix of 12x12 and 6x6 from My Minds Eye Vintage Christmas. I will pop a list of ingredients used at the bottom of my post for you with links where possible.

Do please pop over and take a peek at the wonderful creations the very talented DT have made to inspire you this week.

Have a wonderful day everyone.
