Santa's Helper on a Sleigh Ride

Just had to go back to adding some flowers for this one!  Love the petal shape on these dies!  Finally used this pretty Sleigh stamp that I got from Diana a while back!  Added some DooHickey die flowers and mistletoe along with #3003 Santa's Little Helper.  Not hard to believe this cutie Tilda is out of stock right now, but check with Diana if you are interested.  Otherwise #173 Santa Edwin, #3069 Reindeer Tilda or #3058 Jolly Tilda  from the 2010 Merry Christmas Collection would also be perfect for sitting on this #527 Sleigh and are available at this time.

Used the smaller of the two dies from the DooHickey die #15 Poinsettia Flowers to make the flowers and the larger die for the leaves.  Put a drop of Crystal Lacquer in the center of the flowers and added gold microbeads.   Also used the #17 Mistletoe die along with a 1/8" circle punch for the white berries.  The flowers are red card stock sponged with a deeper red ink around the edges.  The flower leaves are sponged with blue/green ink on medium green card stock.  Sleigh and Tilda are colored with Distress Inks and accented with white glaze pen and Flowersoft.
After getting to play with the minis for a while, these Maggies seem large, but sure have fun with both sizes.  Huge selection of both sizes at the oh so kind Diana's Magnolia-licious store!
Thank you to all who have left your wonderful comments.  I've so enjoyed them and it is nice to know I'm not alone in my addictions!!

Enjoy every day!

Patti Jo this is drop dead gorgeous - absolutely beautiful -- I sure am gonna copy this one ( for private uses only you understand). Back to Diana's I go - I NEED these die.
Beautiful card and that is putting it mildly.

Wow and wow again. I am gobsmacked.
(Is it okay to say that?)
I love your coloring of Tilda. Love her blouse with the spots and the sparkles on her hat.
those Magnolia DooDickeys are terrific. Love the idea of putting the micro beads in the center and using the bigger petals for leaves. I also like how you have the little dots on the Mistletoe. You are so clever. I need to save for those Magnolia's as I just love them.
