Milk Choc & Turkish Delight Christmas

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are all well, today I have a gate fold card to show you for the brand new Maggie Lovers Challenge Blog , Bron from Shopbron has started this new challenge for all of us that love our Maggies, now the theme is pink & brown or red & brown and as I said in my last post I would normally use the traditional red & green for chrissy! But that's what challenges are all about isn't it, to challenge yourself, and I did manage to fit in a little red & green, I couldn't help myself lol.
This is For You Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection, isn't she cute! and you can get her at  Shopbron I stamped tilda on Cordenons white cardstock, it's beautiful paper it feels like silk and is also available at Shopbron. The DP is from Nitwit Collections and the xmas tree is a clear stamp that I have had for ages. The flowers are from WOC, pearls from Kaisercraft.
For the inside I stamped the xmas tree again and added a little verse from Stamp-it.
I'm sort of heavy with photo's this time , I was trying to pick up the Kindy Glitz - Crystalina ( I hope you can see it ) also how the card opens. I coloured tilda with copic's and prisma pencils, I really like the combination of the two colour mediums together, I seem to be able to get better results when I use both.
Copic's & Pencils
Skin - E0000,000,00 Henna pencil
Hair- E25,30 Dark Brown
Shoes- E43,42,40 Dark Brown
Dress- R81,0000 Pink
Present- G20 Dark green -R14 Tuscan Red 
I hope you like my Christmas card, I would like to enter the following challenge
Maggie Lovers Challenge #1 - Theme Christmas Pink & Brown or Red & Brown

Christmas Bunny

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a card for you featuring a Wee Stamp called Christmas Bunny, I purchased from HERE as a digital image.
I really stepped out of my comfort zone for this one! I usually go for the traditional red & green on my Chrissy cards, but decided I needed something different, I also don't use glitter very much normally, but here I am with lots of sparkle and I think I really like it now. What do you think?
Wild Orchid Crafts have a challenge at the moment they would like to see Christmas Fun.
So to create Christmas Fun I used WOC gorgeous silver corners , nit wit collections DP for the gingham paper, cuttlebug embossing folder Snowflakes, Kaisercraft DP Lilac Avenue, the sentiment is a freebie from  Bizzy Bec's store blog and the ribbon is from my stash.
 This is the inside of the card, the snowflake stamp is from inkadinkado and the verse I can't remember where I got that one from, I think I have had it for a 100 years lol, well maybe not that long hehe . The silver mirror paper has been in my stash for ages too, just waiting for this card I think, and the die is spellbinders heart circles.
I took a few photo's of this one to try to pick up the glitter and shine so you all could see how bright it really is. I also used Clear glaze pen on the sleigh to give it a metal look.
I coloured the image with Copic Sketch Markers & Prisma Pencils for highlighting
Snow BG 0000,000
Sleigh N2.C00
Hat & Present BG 13,11,10
Present BV0000,00 Violet pencil
Holly G0000,R0000
Bunny E0000,000,42,40 Light Umber & Rosy Beige pencil

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me such lovely comments I appreciate them very much.
