Magnolia Down Under Challenge #18

The next challenge is up at Magnolia Down Under. The theme is Christmas in July and this is my second card as guest design team member. I'm having a wonderful time. I was a little worried at first when I saw the word Christmas and realized I didn't have a specific Tilda for the occasion. But I did have this sweet Tilda with Envelope, so I've used her. She is off to post a Christmas card! So by doing this, you can see you don't have to own a Christmas Tilda to be part of the challenge.

I've used traditional Christmas colours: Riding Hood Red and Old Olive, teamed up with some Very Vanilla and Dashing DP.
I've also used Season of Joy stamp set for the tag and background behind Tilda. The image has been stamped in Black Stazon and I've coloured with my SU markers.
I've used some wide grosgrain ribbon to make a big bow and tie off with a red button. And to pretty it up just a little, I've added a border with the Eyelet border punch.
So there you have it; I hope it gives you a little inspiration for the Magnolia stamps and that you will join in the fun as well. Check out all the other fabulous creations from the Design Team - they are all amazing.
