Christmas in July - Again

It's Christmas in July for a second challenge in the Playground and with another bumper prize to be won too.   I have to admit I had to print some design paper for this card and of course I used a card blank but everything else here was cut from snippets of card from my cream and gold collections.  The poinsettias and the backing for the sentiment were cut using cream pearlescent card and the top layers were cut from some gold pearlescent card.

Poinsettias - dies from Sizzix (this year's issue I think)
Sentiment - dies from Tonic (a few years old)
DSP - printed from Artylicious Season's Greetings CD (an all time favourite)


  1. Hi Val,
    What a very gorgeous card and a beautiful design too.
    Love the background paper used and the poinsettias are so lovely.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  2. Hi Val - my first reaction is how very elegant this is. Absolutely gorgeous card. It oozes style. IMHO.
