NZ Aunty

Hello Friends!
My final Christmas card  is going to my aunt in New- Zealand.
She is 88 years young. I have colored this one again with distress inks.
the DP is from a Stampin up designer collection. I have also used a favourite  Spellbinders frame.
It is also one of my favourite Magnolia stamps.

Oh wow Maz - this is neat. Don't cha just love it when you look at a card and it catches you by surprise! I like the way this is arranged with the pattern more or less bumping up to the solid. Your coloring look so good - I haven't been able to blend well yet.

How pretty to see this colored Tilda. She looks so soft on this coloring and the lace trims give it an even more elegant look. Looks awesome :o)

Oh Maz I am so jealous, I just love your coloring with Distress Inks. I can't color with them to save myself.
Your card is so elegant, and the Spellbinders frame is so perfect with that DP. The lace is the icing on the lovely cake. Love it!
