Today I managed to have a crafty afternoon. I came home from work and managed to make 3 cards and finish one from last night. It's great when the juices flow and things go according to plan.

I made this Christmas card since there are so many Christmas in July challenges.

I used PB images and Woodware sentiment, Pebbles chalks, Sizzix stars, liquid pearls, Nellie multi frames and Nestie, Stickles and Promakers.

The photo doesn't really show the pearlised chalks or the glitter on some of the stars.

I am entering this card into the following challenges. :-

Crafty Creations - #29 Christmas in July

Charisma Cardz - 4 legged friends

Fussy & Fancy Friday - Christmas in July

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Monochromatic

The Sweet Stop - sketch

CES - Feeling the Blues

Sweet Stampin Challenge - Christmas in July

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Background

WinterWonderland - Fairies/Angels

This is such a pretty card Elaine. Your own made background paper is an excellent idea and works beautifully on your card. The colours are pretty and you have coloured your image beautifully.
