Christmas in August?

I've come up with a great idea for the Magnolia-licious August sketch. I think I have done something that can be considered for "thinking ouside the box". I also found that this can qualify for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #19, so I have entered for that one also. What a fun sketch for my second challenge! I hope you all like it!!

Here's the sketch:Here's my creation!
As you can see, I've rotated the image and put chilly Tilda in a snow globe! The back of the snow globe was vellum paper I embossed with a Cuttlebug template. The outside of the globe was an old plastic paper file keeper I found in my stationary. I have yet to find a stencil for circles, so my circles are a bit imperfect. Please let me know what you think!

Viv, what imagination you have! The snowglobe is certainly thinking outside the box. Love the colours for Tilda's outfit. Great job.
