Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...

...ooh I think that was one of my favourite Nursery Rhymes, I
even remember a magazine I used to get as a little girl called
Twinkle....does anyone else remember it?

Right on with my card, I just had to enter into the
Magnolia Challenge this week as I love distressing my cards,
it is second nature to me,
I love anything shabby chic and vintage too.

This card has a little star appearing on the front too and she
comes bearing gifts! This little Tilda and the envelope she is
sitting on are another two of the new Magnolia Christmas
stamps which I have water coloured and also used Tim Holtz
Vintage Photo distressing ink.
The little musical page is a PI stamp, stamped with Timber
Brown Staz On, ooh I just adore it, I think I might be using
this little one on a few cards!
Just wanted to show you this fab paper tearing ruler I use
for a great neat (if it can be neat) torn look! Its from Plaid
and although they are American based there are some outlets
in the UK.

This charm embellishment on the side I have made using Stamped
Spotty heart from Anita's stamped with Black Staz On and cut out,
I have punched two stars and smaller heart and used an
eyelet to hold them all together the string is knotted in the
eyelet and fixed at the back of the heart with the large brass
vintage jingle bell on the end. Smaller stars are punched from
gold mirri card. Ribbon and lace from stash, papers are from
D & D a Winters Tale which I have distressed around the edges
using an old emery board I have also used it on the large gold
star. Think that's everything, have a lovely Wednesday everyone
and Happy Crafting, TFL Sue xx
