Christmas In July!

I know, I know, it’s been at least 28c in the South East of England recently!  But to celebrate our return after our summer break, the theme for the new challenge at Sentimental Sundays is ” Christmas in July!”

Our sponsor this week is Zlatoena Designs – and I have to admit that I have never used one of their stamps before….but I reckon I’ll be having a little shopping trip very soon, as I found the images really cute, easy to colour and even easy to paper piece!

For this challenge, I used Bunny Snowball Winter – simply coloured with Pro-Markers and a hint of sparkle!  The striped paper is from an old Forever Friends stack that I have in my stash.  The white mat was an offcut of white card, dry embossed with the Darice snowflakes folder.  The sentiment was printed directly onto a piece of card, and edged in blue chalk and silver Brilliance ink to blend with the overall colour scheme.  I cut the snowflakes on the Silhouette, from some glittercard and popped a little gem into the centre .  I am a little obsessed with delicate, yet oversized snowflakes at the moment, so it was lovely to finally make a card I could add one to!
