Magnolia Christmas step card

Hi everyone,

I hope you enter my Flourish with a Bling candy, if you'd like the chance to win it click here. It finishes on Thursday 20th December and I will announce the winner on Friday!

I am hoping this looks Christmassy as it is not a Christmas stamp nor is it Christmas colours lol, how did I go? Do you think it looks like a Christmas card??? I think it does for some reason lol and not just because it has a Christmas sentiment!

I probably shouldn't show close ups as I'm not the greatest copic "colourer" but I am slowly learning new techniques from some of your blogs out there and wow, are there some amazing artists in the world of cardmaking!! I am still trying my hand at shading let alone making creases in outfits etc, I am totally in awe of that. 

I silver embossed around her with a flourish stamp and some silver embossing powder to match the Bo Bunny papers as they have glitter on them.
