Christmas In July At Simply Magnolia.

Good morning, crafty bloggers.
We have a new challenge starting today at Simply Magnolia 
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is
Stamp and Create 

I used Tilda Sitting On Christmas Gift.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Spellbinders floral oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I have used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and  Lili Of The Valley
 Krafty Christmas papers.
Other dies used are Marianne Design Creatables Ivy circle, Little Darlings lovely view, Doohickey slender fir, jolly tag, lovely fence and Cheery Lynn pine branches.
I also used Martha Stewart punch woodland branches.
I have inked the papers and all the dies with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
I placed a piece of cheese cloth behind the image.

Here is a photo of the jolly tag removed from the corp canvas mini bag.
The sentiment is Magnolia Vintage Merry Christmas Post Mark. I have stamped it with Memento rich cocoa ink and added Frantage shabby white embossing enamel to each corner.
I have tied shabby white seam binding through the tag.

Here is a close up of Tilda.
I sprinkled shabby white embossing enamel around the image and added ArtDeco glamour dust to Tilda's hat trim, pom pom and cuff.
I dotted Tilda's cheek with an Inkssential opaque white pen.

The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the beaded berries are from The Ribbon Girl.
The tiny wooden stars are from Live & Love crafts.

Inside the card is decorated with Krafty Christmas paper and a Spellbinders floral oval.

We would love you to come and join in with the challenge.
My teamies have deigned some gorgeous creations.
