Christmas Tilda

Welcome to the second stop on the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop for the month of August! If you didn't start at the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog, or if you get lost along the way, please head back there for a full list of participants.

I love this Tilda image. She reminds me of my daughters, all of whom play string instruments. The Basic Grey paper reminds me of my grandparent's wallpaper from when I was a child. When I look at this card, I can picture the family sitting around the Christmas tree, with Christmas music playing.
The way Tilda's dress came out, it looks like velvet. I wish the photo showed it better. Her wings were done with a Gelly Roll pen to make them sparkle.

Thanks for coming to see me this morning. Next stop is Charlene! Have fun hopping and have a wonderful day!

Edit - 12:52pm
ACK! Totally forgot to link the challenges. That's what I get for blogging while half asleep.

Challenges this card is for include:
CPS#181 - sketch
Sew Many Challenges #23 - Christmas in August
Wild Orchid #4 - Make it Sparkle
Etsy Inspired Challenge 102 - the shop is Global Children, so I took my inspiration from my children
And sort of the SCS CAS DT search challenge #2, but I'm not positive that I'm going to enter this card. I may make another before Saturday. We'll see.
