Christmas in July

Hi everyone - what a beautiful day it is here today. Doesn't seem the right kind of weather to be making Christmas cards, but that was the challenge over on the Outlawz challenge blog today.
The centre image is a die cut, the die was a freebie from a magazine. I cut it once from dark blue card & once from black card. The black die cut I stuck onto white card, then pieced the dark blue card for the sky.
I cut the twiggy wreath, poinsettia, fir tree branches, snowflakes & sentiment from white card. Inked the pieces I wanted coloured.
Arranged everything onto some paler blue card, then matted this onto dark blue card & attached this onto the card.
Finally I went around with some Stickles to add a bit of glitter - well you just have to for Christmas!
Thanks for stopping by.
