Christmas in July

Come and Get It this week has a Christmas in July Challenge and I have created this card for the challenge. To make my card I used an image by Oak Pond Creations, one of our sponsors this week.  The digital image is called Ice Skates and can be found here.


I used several different Christmas pattern papers, an embossing folder and distress ink to create the background.  The images was coloured with Copics and a  ribbons and a sentiment were added to complete the card. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a very creative day.
