Sweet Stampin GDT- Christmas in July!

Hello all! Hope you are going to enjoy a lovely crafting weekend!

Here is my last card as Guest Designer for Sweet Stampin Challenges. The challenge this week is Christmas in July. This is fabby as I'm still endeavouring to get a decent head start on early Christmas cards. I usually start in October so I'm dead chuffed with myself this year as I have made 17 so far! Yay! Why not come and play as I'm sure we could all do with getting a little head start?

I love this image. It's so funky and different, dontcha think? Stamp is by (who else?) Stamping Bella coloured with lyra and watercolour pencils and a sponged background. I added Glossy Accents to the red baubles/lamp fringe and a touch of Stickles here and there. Papers are by Stampin Up. Little star die is the tiny tags die from Papertrey Ink (I love that set so much, am using it on nearly every card!!) Sentiment is Waltzing Mouse.
