Christmas in June

 Happy Saturday crafting friends , a card I've not made a lot of lately , Christmas and an easel card .
I used a Marianne design die ,LR)327, inking and embossing the white card . The silver ivy leaves die is also a Marianne die . The image and sentiment are from Hunkydory , the flowers are from my local cake decorating shop and the pearls and gems hobby craft.
Just showed my hubby this card and he said wow, some husbands would think I was mad making Christmas cards in June but mines used to this crafting lark now .

Challenges entered :

Allsorts : Christmas in June 
crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge : Christmas/winter fun
Christmas card throwdown : stash , use pearls , gems sequins (I used pearls and star gems )
sparkles Christmas challenge : non traditional colours 

have a great weekend . jane x

What a work of art. You have built it up beautifully and used pretty colours. The image reminds me of the Little Grey Rabbit books I used to have as child. I think we probably are mad but are lucky to have tolerant families!
Thanks for playing along at Christmas Card Throwdown.
