New Years Card

Here is a card I created for New Years. I kept this card VERY simple and white, to follow along with the Magnolia-licious challenge. I really like how it turned out, although simple, I think it is really pretty. I love this angel Tilda, and all the sparkle in this card. In Real Life, it is UBER sparkly!!!
I decided to make a gatefold card and used all white cardstock. I distressed all the edges with my distress tool, and Vintage Photo Distress ink. I then added Diamond Stickles to all the edges for added sparkle and shine.
I am still trying to work out the kinks of my new photo booth, so please bear with me and the photos. I will get better, I promise!!!
Here is a close up of Tilda. I colored her with copics and added stickles to her wings and halo. I cut her out with my new Lacey Circles Nestie!!!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Stamp Something - Glitter
Prairie Fairy Fridays - New Beginnings
Magnolia-licious Challenge - Photo Inspiration

  7. Becca, I really like how your card turned out too. And when I blow up the pictures I can see all the sparkles you're talking about. Looks terrific--good job with the glitter. Bet it made a mess of your craft was worth it. Beautiful colouring of this adorable angel Tilda. Terrific job with distressing all those edges. My arm always gets tired doing this.
