Baby it's cold outside??????

Perhaps this is wishful thinking LOL! No it is really hot and muggy here, but I found this fun challenge about Christmas in July and had to whip something together. As I said yesterday, Jill is offering $25 Papertrey Ink gift certificate as a prize, so hurry over.
Well I had a lot of fun digging through my shamelessly large stack of Christmas paper. I am really going to have to design something that uses a lot of that up this year! It is really getting bad, LOL.

Another thing I haven't used enough of is my Papertrey Ink Christmas stamp sets. I only purchased Dawn's word christmas set last year because I just had WAYYY to many sitting. Perhaps that will be part of my card this year as well.

Okay, I started by punching my main circles with marvy punches and then did some embossing. I then stamped my favorite mitten in bermuda bay ink on the sahara sand paper. It looks a little different than the dsp because I stamped on sahara rather than white, but it still worked for me. I then put brown glitter on the snowflake I put on the mitten. This is my one thing I would take away looking back LOL!

It's a good life!

Terri, this is fabulous! (BTW, thanks so much for entering my challenge! It's an honor to have you join in!) Your card has beautiful detail (I *like* the brown glitter--it looks like copper in the picture and sets off the blues beautifully!), lovely colors, and is well balanced, design-wise. I really love it! And LOL, I can relate to the oodles of Christmas paper needing to be used! :-D
