Christmas in July at MAWTT

Good morning everybody

Is it Winter again?  I cannot believe it has got so chilly.  Had the hood down on the car yesterday morning, and by the evening I was wrapped up in a thick sweatshirt.

At  Moving Along with the Times  we have Christmas in July.  So I had to find my box of Christmas stamps and papers.I'm ashamed to say I discovered several that had not been inked up before, and the one I have used is one of them.

I have followed a sketch on Christmas Challenges for this card, and decided to go with colours of one tone for a change.  Not something I would normally do.  My image is from Lili of the Valley, and I have coloured with Copics.  The paper is from the Basic Grey Wassail paid, which I have had for some time.  Flowers are from WOV, and lace is from stash.

Our sponsor for this Challenge is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Christmas Challenges - I followed the sketch
Flutterby Wednesday - must have an angel, fairy or butterfly
The House that Stamps Built - Christmas in July
