Divas By Design ~ Christmas in July

Whoo hoo, We're on the train to Mums (at least we are if you read this between 10:19am and  2:18pm Wednesday! lol) so I am certainly on my holidays :-) but that doesn't stop it being time for another challenge over at Divas By Design and this week we are celebrating 'Christmas in July' and the DT have made some gorgeous creations to inspire you so be sure to check them out.

I have used a Delicious Doodles image that I love, 'Snowy Postbox' and I thought I'd be a little bit different with my background this time and went for red mirricard which I embossed with a fiskars texture plate, the white doily is a diecut using a Crafty Cutters die from Crafty Sentiments then I added some more red mirricard circles this time embossed with a Cuttlebug snowy scene folder.  Then I added colour just to the postbox using spectrum pencils and finished off with some red peeloff corners and snowflake eyelets.  Now this is a card that sometimes I like and other times I'm really not sure about it!  That'll teach me for trying to be different lol

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles #95 ~ Anything Goes using a DD image
Sweet Stampin' ~ Christmas in July
Quirky Crafts #14 ~ Christmas in July with die cuts (and/or punches)
