Merry Kissmas from Tilda

This month's challenge from Little Stamp Shoppe was to make a Magnolia Christmas card using non-traditional colors. I love vintage pink and blue for Christmas and had been hoarding these Heidi Grace papers since last year! This card is more embellished than I typically make, but it kind of goes along with the whole idea that at Christmas, you can never over-decorate. I used the sketch from Midnight Madness and thought that this was perfect for the challenge at Spoon Full of Sugar, which was to create a Christmas card suitable for a pre-schooler (This card kind of reminds me of how I would have dressed myself when I was 4!)
