Christmas in July

I wanted to try something different from the traditional Christmas colours and I finally got around to making the blue Christmas card I intended to make the other day! My next one is going to be pink!


I have used:
DP is from Dovecraft's Winter Wonderland pack
Dark blue pearlescent card for mats from stash
Light blue pearlescent card is from stash and has been Cuttlebugged with Snowflakes embossing folder
Image is Snowflake Tree from The Stamping Boutique, coloured with Promarkers and I have added Ultra Fine Crystal glitter to the snowflakes
Scalloped circles cut with Nellie Snellen multiframe round die

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Use a Digi Image
2 Sisters 2nd Challenge - Christmas in July
Stampacular Sunday #69 - Christmas in July
Tuesday Taggers Christmas in July
I Love Promarkers #25 - Christmas in July
