Magnolia-Licious Challenge - Christmas in July

Oh I had fun with this card for the second week of the Magnolia-Licious "Christmas in July" challenge and I hope you like it.
It has been hard to think of Christmas when it is 99F outside and I looked and looked at my Christmas stamps and traditional style was not calling to me and so I decided to make a fun scene with Tilda and Edwin inside a Snow Globe!

Card Recipe:
Images - In The Snow Scarf Tilda and Christmas Eve Edwin
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Wonderland by Martha Stewart
Sentiment - Holly Jolly by Adorn It
Metallic Cardstock - American Crafts
Glitter Pen - Viva Decor
Glitter - Glamour Dust
Rhinestones - Unknown
Circle Dies (to make globe) - Lifestyle Crafts

After coloring Tilda and Edwin I fussy cut them out to make the scene. I cut a circle inside a circle to make the frame for the globe and made a matching stand. I added a scene cut from a piece of patterned paper that was just the perfect background and added torn paper for the snow and then glitter. From the same paper I cut out one of the trees and the North Pole sign and added them. Tilda and Edwin were then added to the front of the scene and then finally the sentiment. It was really fun to make and once I figured the logistics it was pretty easy too (going to make another soon for another project :)).
I hope you liked this and that it gave a little cool down and that it will get you in the mood to play along with us at Magnolia-Licious
