Magnolia-licious DT Monochromatic Challenge

Good morning my dears, I'm here to remind you that you still have oodles of time to pop over and join in the fun at

Magnolia-licious Challenge

Our theme is Monochromatic and as you can see I've gone with grey tones which I think are perfect on this Kraft gift bag. My image is Show me the Way Tilda from the Winter Wonderland collection 2013 available HERE  I have also used the new #2 Early Bird Doohickey die club kit, the cute horse x2 , tree x 2 , snowflake x4, Holly & Berry leaves x 2 and the snowflake border.  

My first layer of paper is Tim Holtz shabby chic 12 x 12 pad which I've stitched around the edges using my 20yr old trusty sewing machine. My second lair of paper is from Maya designs and is the vintage Autumn basics 6x6 pad. I've also used this paper to cut out some of the dies. 

The stamps surrounding Tilda are from Marianne Designs, the recipe stamp at the top is from paperartsy and the December 25th is cut from TH paper pad.

Our sponsor as always is the very generous Diana with a fabulous
Special Surprise package. 

Don't forget you could also win a prize if you leave a comment on the Main Blog post and on our Design Team posts.  The more comments you leave the more chance you have to win.

Wishing you all a fabulous day and I am so looking forward to
seeing all your beautiful projects over the next few weeks.
