Magnolias: Something Old, Something New

Happy Tuesday fellow crafters!  What's "Old and New?"  Today I thought I'd use something old(er) along with a new(er) image from Magnolia.  I don't get to ink up my stamps as often and with such a huge, wonderful selection and me wanting to get every one, I'm continuously buying (almost) every stamp that comes out,  and I found that most stamps get inked no more than twice!  Enough rambling, so today I used "Tilda With Heart Ornament" from the 2008 Christmas Collection, and the Candy Cane that came in my 2010 Fall kit.  I'm playing along in the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #71 which asks that you "make your own embellishments." 
My card base is 5.5" square from black linen CS, then layered with Imaginisce Polar Expressions DP.  I don't remember the other DP I used as I got it out of my scrap box.  The embellishments I made are the rosette from stretchy red gingham ribbon, and the chain with three bells dangling from the rosette. I colored each image twice, cut out some areas from the second, then layered on the first for some dimension.  I've also added some Prisma Glitter to the white areas of the candy cane, Viva Glass Effect Gel to the red areas.  I used Butter Cup Stickles on her heart ornament.  I added a black flourish behind Tilda with the Tim Holtz Alterations Elegant Flourishes die since the space behind her looked too bare.  If you would like to know the Copic colors I used, it's listed below.
Dress, stockings, and candy cane:  R59, 29, 27, 24, 01; YG67, 17, 03
Ornament:  Y18, 15, 11
Hair:  E25, 31, 15, Y21
Skin:  E50, 00, R00 (cheeks)
Thank you for stopping by today.  Christmas is not too far away and I've got to start making my cards and I'm sure you all are doing the same LOL!  Have a wonderful week, happy crafting, keep warm and stay safe.
