Christmas in July


FireCracker Designs by Pamela is sponsoring this week at Stamp Something which is Christmas in July so I am sharing my take on the challenge with you :)

I used the sketch from June Stamper's Quest and the color combo for swap I was in to complete this card. I also used a new technique I learned from Technique Junkies for coloring this one.

Papers used were from Paper Temptress (Banana and Gumdrop Green Pop Tones) with a patterned paper from a mat stack I got from Joann's eons ago. I thought it sorta looked like snowflakes :)
The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and tied the color scheme together nicely.

Stamps of course are from FireCracker Designs by Pamela one of my favorite stamps called Snow - Chin Up. This snowman is too cute and I used the snowflake from the set for the bottom along the Banana card stock.

Embellishments I used are Glitter Dots from the Dress It Up Collection a Jesse James Co. and also some Rain Dots from Fiskars.

I hope you will give the challenge a try and share your Christmas in July with us!
