****CHRISTMAS IN JULY FOR MICHELLE*****

Good Evening Everyone
Well it's day 2 of my holidays and am I really getting to like the time off..But I've  been busy making and creating and because it's cold here in Oz, I thought a Christmas in July card would be fitting for our rather cool weather...
I used my wonderful Tilda stamp I bought from the craft show and papertoled her...She is soooo cute!!
And I used a variety of colours which I didn't think would work, but I think it turned ok :)
I incorporated faux stitching for the border, used kasiercraft patterned paper (from the Gypsy collection) black card stock, took a Xmas scene into photo sketch pro and then coloured it with copics (you know I love these:0), applied liquid applique and diamond sticklers for the snow, dimensional magic for the glass areas, some snow pearls and a gorgeous oval silver plate with the sentiment "July" on it..  
Here's a side view too....(sorry about the lightning)
So I hope my card makes you feel a little pre-Xmassy, because it's only months away...
And I couldn't just make a card with adding it to a few challenge sites;)
Check them out and why don't you have a go, it's a great way to get noticed and inspired xxx
