Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Any Season

It is time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week the challenge is "any season". As I have made a lot of summer cards this week I decided I'd go to the other extreme and make my first Christmas card of the year with this gorgeous Tilda from the Wedding Collection but I think she fits Christmas too! I am entering my card into the challenge at Cute Card Thursday too as they want us to get a head start on Christmas cards as well!

I have coloured Tilda with copics and added stickles to her lace trims and presents. I broke into my MME christmas stack that I had stashed away ready for the season, I just love the colours on this stripey paper!
It is so long now since I made a Christmas card I couldn't think what embellishments to put on at first other than snowflakes and then I remembered I had some Prima Christmas baubles full of poinsettias and leaves - phew! I created the gem swirl myself with come gems from the Hobby House.
Hope you like it and I haven't scared you away with my Christmas card in July LOL! I hope you can join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge! Pop and have a look at the rest of my teamies gorgeous creations - you won't be disappointed! x
