Magnolia Down Under #56 - Christmas in July / Mojo Monday #149

Happy Saturday!

I missed the Christmas blog hop this month, but did not want to lose my Christmas card momentum. Fortunately, Magnolia Down Under has given me a chance to redeem myself. Their challenge this week is Christmas in July. The base of my card is inspired by Mojo Monday's sketch, seen here...

...and here is my Christmas in July card...

Stamp: Tilda With Christmas Tree (Magnolia)
Paper: Mellow Moss, designer papers from stash
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink
Accessories: Branch punch, Flowers, Lace, Stickles, Ribbon, Scallop Trim Border Punch

I colored my image using very soft colored distress inks.

I had most of the colors I wanted for my flowers, with the exception of the large flower, so I colored it with my Copics Airbrush System.

I hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful. Thanks for visiting!



Wow Julie - this is stunning! Love your soft colouring of Tilda, and the beautiful layout. Fabulous embellishments too.
Love, Sylvia x
