Christmas in July at Stampin' for the Weekend


This fortnight's challenge at SFTW is Christmas in July with a sketch & our fabulous sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp.  It's never to early to start making Christmas cards & as I usually leave mine until the last minute challenges like this really help me get organised lol.  Why not check out the other DT members blogs for more inspiration. 


For my card I used papers from Designer Digitals which I inked the edges with silver ink, the image was one I've had for ages & it's been coloured with ProMarkers. The finishing touches are: silver thread, die cute snowflakes, punched foliage, glittered flowers & a greeting from Craftwork Cards.


I'm entering this card for these challenges:
Alphabet - J is for Jewels
Digi Doodle - Circles & Dots
Sparkle - Christmas Song (Frosty the Snowman)
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - In Stitches
Fussy & Fancy - Christmas in July
