Fussy & Fancy...Christmas in July...

Hi Susan here....

Over at Fussy and Fancy the continuing challenge gets the addition of Group B's creations to give you some further inspiration for the theme 'Christmas in July'. To get all the information you need about the challenge and our sponsor this time and to see some fabulous creations from the design team call across to the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog.

Now for my card....

Well if any of you saw my post earlier you would have noticed that blogger has been playing up and removed my photo and all my 'blurb'....anyway here we go again!!

My favourite time of the year is Christmas so this card was not hard for me to do. I hope you like it.

My backing paper and vellum is from my stash, so pleased I found it all.....I used the beautiful green paper first on my card then overlayed it with the gorgeous vellum, folding it over the crease line of the card.

For added texture I have used a piece of red corrugated card over the top of a piece of the green backing paper, then added the gros grain ribbon.

The poinsettia flower I made myself, using a five petal shape and deckle scissors.

The chipboard letters I have had for ages, the original colour was awful, so I used two different Tim Holtz ink pads and coloured them, then added some glitter and on top of that I put a thick layer of glossy accents.

I think the whole thing came together quite nice, I hope you do!!
Thank you for looking and for leaving all your wonderful comments they are so welcome.
Love Susan
