Christmas in July

Happy Friday!

TGIF! Hope you are having a great day and that you have an even better weekend! Can  you  believe it's the last weekend in July! Yikes where is this summer going?! We are looking forward to some fun with family this weekend and some much needed relaxing too!


Today is new challenge day over at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something. And I've again combined these challenges on my card. The new challenge at JM is a fabby sketch by Bev that I know I will be using again. And over at SS, we have a theme challenge of Christmas in July. Perfect challenges to combine!

I've used Bev's sketch with some Wassail papers from BG and have stitched the edges on the sewing machine. I colored my sweet and adorable Tilda with Copics to match these pretty holiday papers. And then framed her with circle nesties. I've embellished with lace and stitched ribbon, flowers, a snowflake charm, and a brad. The sentiment is from Whimsy Holiday Postmarks.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Magnolia Down Under: Christmas in July
Stamptacular Sunday: Christmas in July

Thanks for stopping by to visit today. I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Happy Stamping,
