Christmas in July

It's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and this week the theme is 'Christmas in July'.  I have made a card using my favourite technique by Jennifer McGuire as part of the Pattern Play class from Online Card Classes.

The papers are from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Christmas Collection and the tree has been cut using a Die'sire die from Crafter's Companion.  My sentiment is a stamp from Creative Expressions.

Prize:  2 sheets of images
