Christmas in July

What do you do on the hottest day of the year to keep cool?
You make an ice blue, sparkly Christmas card..
I made this card yesterday,
and thought I'd better post it before the tennis starts.
It's for the
Moving Along with the Times challenge,
It's a wonderful sketch, with the option of using
ice blue and white.
What a perfect challenge for me, considering I had just
bought some gorgeous Christmas stamps from
Stamp - Pink Gem Designs, coloured with whispers pens.
I made a mistake in my rush to colour the stamp -
I coloured in a blue hat, where I now think it's actually hair!!!
Never mind.
Design Papers - Anita's Classic Christmas Blue
Fiskars lace punch - small snowflake punch.
Swirl cut with Sizzix die.
Ribbon from my stash.
Lots of Stickles glitter and a sentiment from
Craftwork Cards.
