Joy & Wonder

Today I am celebrating Christmas in July with a card I created for two challenges, Celebrate the Occasion and Card Patterns.
I took a couple of close up pics of the snowflakes so you could see that they are sparkly!

For the challenge at Celebrate The Occasion the theme this week is "Christmas in July (no red)", and for Card Patterns you were to use sketch #122:

Supplies used: cardstock - kraft, cream; patterned paper - Snowed In/Wintermint in Fruitcake by Basic Grey; snowflakes - Scrapbook Studios; ink - brown by Inkadinkado; fonts - Snell Bd BT and Eye glass Normal; ribbon - my stash; border punch - EK Success; Pop Dots

Hope everyone has a relaxing and fun weekend!
