Christmas in July

Pheww!  Last day of the week.  School holidays are almost to an end again.  Back to school next week.
Today I have a Christmas in July card to share with you.  Kaye over at Craftmad gave us a bonus sketch challenge this month with the theme of Christmas.  
So last night I took up the challenge. :-)

I have started with a light blue Bazzill card for the base card and then layers of green and pink bazzill.  I went around the edge of my pink bazzill with a gold metallic pen to tie it in with the tag.  I have used Blue Edge Papers - Sweetiepie Diamond Check and Sweetiepie Stripes on Blue on the front of the card. I found this wonderful tag that I had already coloured last year with my gold metallic pen and watercolour pencils.  
I cute two circles with my spellbinder dies and decorated with these lovely glittery snowflake embellishments.  Finished with the wavy transparent sticker border and gold edged ribbon.

I will be back later today with my Design Team card for the new Cardmadfairy challenge starting tonight.
