Fussy and Fancy: Christmas In July

Wow!  Hard to believe that Christmas is only six months away!  Time to get started on some Christmas cards, and there's no time like the present!  This week over at Fussy and Fancy we want to see your Christmas in July cards!  For this week's challenge, I dug out one of my favorite James the Bear stamps (Lili of the Valley) from last year and got to town.   I used the large deckled rectangle Spellbinders to cut him out and colored him with Copics.  I then used Dimond Stickles to add some sparkle to the trim on his hat and to make the snow sparkle as well.  I used a cardstock sticker from Creative Imaginations and thought it accented the image perfectly.  The aqua snowflake paper is from Traditions.  I hadn't heard about them before, but I LOVE this sheet of designer paper.  I used the Martha Stewart deco fan border punch to accent the top and the bottom of the card and a piece of whit satin ribbon to tie everything together.  Hope you like my first Christmas card of the season and I can't wait to see yours!
