Christmas in July with Tilda

This was such a fun card to make and it will be able to be used in three challenges. The first is this cute little sketch challenge at the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog. Next is the Christmas in July challenge at the Magnolia-licious Highlites where all we had to do was make a Christmas card using a Magnolia stamp, the stamp I used is called Tilda on a Kick sled and you can get it from Diana at Magnolia-licious .The last challenge is at Scrappy Frogs where we just had to make a card with a Magnolia stamp. Tilda is colored with copics R11, R20, R35, R39, E33, E37, E41, BG93, BG96, Y21, Y26, and the colorless blender. The white in the hat and hand muffs are filled with "Fun Flock" by Stampendous. Designer Papers are by Imaginisce, the "Polar Expressions" Frosted Forest, All Aglow, and Flannel PJs. Sentiment is a Snag'em Stamp from the Snowy Jo Collection.
Thanks for coming by I appreciate all your comments.
