Christmas in July

I wanted to share this Christmas Card. It is nice to build up your stash of cards and not to be scrambling in November.

I used some BG Eskimo Kisses and DCVW Patterned Paper along with this Mr.Snowman image from Squigglefly. I colored the snowman with copics. Sentiment is from PTI's Mailbox greetings.

This card is for the following Challenges,

1) Squigglefly Challenge #57 to make a Christmas Card.
2) The Shabby Tea Room Challenge #18 - Christmas in July
3) There She Goes Challenge TSG63 - Inspiration Challenge. I loved the Blue and Orange in this inspiration photo, which is what my card colors are based on.

4) Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge FTTC74 - Christmas in July
5) Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #87 - The Holiday. Create a holiday card with Eyelets.

6) Laura's Sketch #56 from 2 Sketches For You. Here is the sketch,
