Christmas in July

Our challenge at Make My Monday this week is Christmas in July.
I have to confess this is my first Christmas Card of the year, normally I like to start a little earlier and I really admire those who make festive cards the whole year through.  Oh to be so organised!
For my card I have started with a pre-cut card by Papermania.  I have used Distressed Paints and Perfect Pearls to create the background.  I also cut up another card to use as a stencil on the left hand side and painted some seam binding to match.

I have beaded a pre-formed snowflake from odd beads in my stash, so all in all quite a quick card.
I hope you will have a look at the other DT makes too and be inspired to create your own Christmas in July card.
