Sweet Holiday Wishes

Hi there,
back with a card using one of the stamps that came in the Magnolia Christmas stamp kit 2013. love
the mix of images which could be used all the way for Valentines.

Still was not feeling to get my photo tent all the lights out, so I am moving my cards around to see where I like the light. We do have now more windows in the rooms but its really odd to me what a difference real light makes compared to the photo tent. If I have the picture in my photo program to resize and adjust darkness it makes the photo always green, vs the raw photo taken in the tent came most of the time true to the real colors.

The image was water colored with distress markers. I just used the tin in the back to hold my card into place. The inside was not finished so the card was very front heavy :-)

Stamps: Snow Heart Tilda
Sentiment: Amuse Art Stamps
Dies: Spellbinder circle, Tim Holtz border snow flake, Magnolia tree/Firs, Tea Label tag set of 3
Paper: Magnolia blue Christmas, Water color paper whoohooo back in stock!!!
Ink: Stazon, Distress vintage photo
Other: felt snowflake, paper distresser, paper doily, snow tex
