It's Christmas!

There are quite a few Christmas in July challenges about at the moment, and even QVC has had Christmas in July on today, so I thought I'd get into the mood and make a Christmas card. As I haven't made an easel card for a while I decided it was also time for one of those. I started off getting out all my blue papers so I'm not really sure how it ended up red and green!!!






I have used:
Digi image is First Snow from Nina Jay May, coloured with Promarkers
Check DP from DCWV Christmas scrapbook pad
Red snowflake DP saved to computer (source unknown)
White pearlescent card with gold shimmer from stash (bought about 5 years ago) has been Cuttlebug embossed with Snowflakes folder
Red pearlescent card for scalloped circle old stash
Gold snowflake embellishment also old stash
Sentiment is from Daisy & Dandelion paper pack A Winter's Tale

I'd like to enter this card into the following:
Practical Scrappers Use stash older than 1 year (pearlescent card, snowflake embellishment and digi paper)
The Cuttlebug Spot Christmas in July
Ooh La La Creations #58 - Christmas in July
Meljens DT #17 - Easel card
