An easel card for you

Hi peeps,
Wow I'm so excited, I went on just Magnolia yesterday to see this weeks challenge and saw I'd won card of the month for November, I was stunned to say the least as I didn't expect to see it and I thought at first my computer was playing up and it had put me back on my blog lol,
So I just wish to thank all the girls for making my day,

The card I've made here is for my daughter and her husband, Kay doesn't overly do girlie and fussy so I can never go overboard with her stuff, right tom boy she was as a child, hated Pink, so there was no body more surprised than me when she had pink bridesmaids, mind you they weren't a girlie pink lol,
gosh I'm waffling, must be this darn cold I've got lol,

The card shape is made using a circle go kreate  die, I would love to get the scalloped  edge one too but I've not managed to find that yet, the images are of course Magnolia, coloured with copics using Neenah classic crest card, which I thought I'd try for a change, it seems ok and will let me add Distress inks to the background which my other card wouldn't,
I stamped Tilda on to the card, cut the circle, cut out Edwin and sat him on some ribbon which I've threaded underneath Tilda by cutting slits near her feet and threading it through, the rest of the background is made with a grunge stamp using Antique linen Distress ink and I've then blended the same colour round the circle and near the images, I've also used a gold dauber to highlight the gold and used it round the edges of my outer cardstock citrcles too, there is also a Lily of the valley small sentiment stamp on too,
My papers are Magnolia and I've edged them with Platinum stickles, the  Butterflies are edged in the gold dauber and then little gold gems are added to bring in the ones on the circle,

The edges of the Doo Hickey tag are edged too,
The flowers are from a craft event I went to,

Challenges:
Just Magnolia ~ Christmas card,
Totally Tilda ~ With love,
Timbroscrapmania ~ Red and green
Well apart from some star dust stickles on her clothes, two red heart pins and a bit of gold twine and a spellbinders tag with computer generated sentiment, I thinks that's it, phew are you still with me lol,
I hope the piccies look alright, I dropped my camera the other day onto a laminate floor, how it's still working is beyond me lol,
Hope you all have a lovely weekend with lots of fun,
