Little Ida's Flowers! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
Brrrrr it's cold today, I think the furthest I'll be going today is into my craft room so in other words I'm enjoying a day at home.
Hubby and Jode had a really lovely day on Sunday at Hoggin' The Bridge, there were over 3,500 motorbikes there which was a lot more than the organisers anticipated and they raised thousands of pounds for various charity's including Meningitis UK which is close to our hearts as Jodie had Meningitis when she was only 11 and Jodie lost her friend Sophie to it last year. Jodie said it was an amazing & emotional day, she couldn't get over all the people lining the route waving & cheering, I'm amazed she could hear the cheers over the racket those Harley's make lol. After hours searching through You Tube videos of it hubby has managed to find video's of them riding so he's happy lol.

Today is new challenge day at
and this week our challenge is

If you are stuck for ideas & don't want to use the famous one's google "Fairytales" and you will be able to find lists of them.

This week my lovely teamies and I are showcasing my little favourites Magnolia stamps, pop over and take a peek at the gorgeous inspiration the girls have come up with.
Before I share my card I just want to thank the lovely Jane for giving me some tips for colouring white with Copics, I can't pull it off as well as Jane does but hopefully with a bit of practice I might get there, thanks hun xx

I have taken my inspiration from a Fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen called Little Ida's Flowers
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - Magnolia
Flowers - Prima, Magnolia, stash & Prima flower center

 I have masked sweet Tilda and stamped the Christmas text & sweet snowflakes in Dusty Concord distressed ink over & around the image, the sparkle is diamond stickles and the twirly stick is homemade.
I'm not sure if you can see it very well but this beautiful Simplicity lace has a really pretty iridescent finish, I so need to get lots more of this
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a very generous $50 in store spending spree

If you haven't seen the new Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection by Magnolia where the heck have you been lol, no seriously click the pic and take a peek I love them all

Don't forget to keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp STORE BLOG where you can see the new goodies in store and also be in with a chance of winning some lovely giveaways

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Bunny Zoe's - lace it up, Top Tip Tuesday - layer it up, Pink Ink - fabby sketch, Stamptacular - you choose!, Make It Monday - anything goes linky party, Whoopst Daisy - free & easy, Colour Create - lilac, grey & white, Crafty Ribbons - ribbon & lace, Fairy Fun Fridays - sugar & spice & all things nice, If The Shoe Fits - female power, Just Magnolia - distressing, Allsorts - lavender & lace,
