Season's Greetings

It's time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and the theme for the next fortnight is Christmas in July.

I have used a gorgeous Christmas image and papers from my favourite Ooh La La Creations The Shawn Jenkins Collection CD to make my card.


Everything on my card is from the CD except the card stock and ribbon.  I used Kraft card stock and inked the edges of the papers and image with distress ink - the border is an X-cut border punch


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Inkspirational Challenge 87 - Kraft
Jingle Belles - Old Fashioned Christmas
Deep Ocean Challenge 108 - Christmas in July
Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Christmas in July
My Time to Craft Challenge 300 - Christmas in July

Make sure you pop over to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Christmas in July challenge.

Thank you for calling today, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Ice skates are such a fun thing to display at Christmas time and your card has the whole fun theme going on.Love all the layers and the mini-me in the lower corner. The red against all this is just striking. Enjoy your day.
