Christmas in July

Here is my entry for Karens Doodles USA challenge this week, their theme being Christmas in July.
The only Karens Doodles winter/christmas image I have is this one so will need to get some more in time to make my christmas cards.
I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and stuck to some gold paper before sticking onto base card.
The designer paper is from an 8 x 8 contempory christmas paper pad from Dovecraft. I have used gold fine line peel offs to edge the green card and used a Martha Stewart Artic snowflake punch to create the gold snowflakes stuck on the green card.
The sentiment has been computer generated and cut out with my circle nesties.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
Karens Doodles Christmas in July
Ooh la la Creations Christmas in July
Fussy and fancy Christmas in July
Simple Doodles Holiday fun
Bee Crafty 3D
Magical Crafts Christmas in July
Pollycraft Bold and bright
