Christmas Tilda

It's really hard for me to make these Christmas cards in July! I guess that's why "Christmas in July" is such a popular theme, but wow, I can't look at these color combos and the Christmas stamps without getting mad about how hot it is, lol. Hard to tell in this picture, but the bottom half of Tilda is popped up for dimension :)

Anyway, this card is for a few challenges:
  1. Just Magnolia - Week #15 A Sketch by Tab
  2. Cottage Rumble - Christmas Rumble
  3. One Stop Craft - Challenge #39 Christmas in July
  4. Ann's Challenge - GCA #51 Christmas in July
  5. The Cuttlebug Spot - Challenge #41 Christmas in July
  6. Magnolia-licious Highlites - Christmas in July
  7. Stamp with Fun - Challenge #17 Pearls
  8. The Crafty Pad - Challenge #32 Something New - I used my new Magnolia stamp
Card Details
Stamp: Tilda with Tag, gel-a-tins sentiment
Papers: Kaboodle Doodle Old Kit and Dots Kit
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, embossing folder
