Christmas is a Coming.....

Good Morning on this cold damp Saturday Autumn /Winter sure is on it's way!
I have acouple of cards i made a while ago anf have just put the finishing touches too.Both Christmas ,both totasly different to the "norm"Christmas colours.

The first card is of tilda and Edwin skating of course from the lovely Magnolia .Which i purchased sometime ago ,not had much use out of it .So when i was looking through my over filled draw of christmas stamps this poor stamp fell onto the floor .So i thought it was about time i used it.I have coloured with copics.the design Paper is actually from Kaiser craft but not from the christmas collection but think from the Gypsy set.The other D/p was a scrap from my scrap draw from last christmas.The Sentiment is from LOTV and the other from my computer.The Lace iove had for a while and never used ,flowers are from Prima.Pearls Kaiser craft,and the snowflake Brad from Papermania.Then sprayed with Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist.

I am entering this card into the following Challenges:
