Christmas in July!

ETA: My Christmas wreath won Top 3 at the Totally Tilda Challenge. Thank you girls!

I definitely love Christmas. So what could be better than making my Christmas decorations on July? This time I decorated an old wicker wreath with red and green ribbon, some pretty flowers and of course, these gorgeous Magnolia stamps. I'm entering the Totally Tilda Challenge: Christmas Decoration in July and the Magnolia Down Under Challenge: 3D card/project.

For this project I used Celebrate It ribbon, the Magnolia stamps are: Tilda writing diary and Edwin's town. As usual, I colored them using Copic markers. Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20. Dress: R39, R27, R24 and R22. Hair: E37, E33 and E50. The houses: W5, W3, W1, E37, E33, E31, Y23 and Y21.

The beautiful flowers and decorative "hat" pins are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also added Crystal Snow to the flowers for some sparkle.

I placed Tilda and each one of the houses at different levels for a nice 3 dimensional effect.

Thanks for visiting!
