Paperplay - Christmas in August

 Supplies:  CB Embossing Folder - dots and stars, aqua, kraft and pink 
cardstock - Folia, Spellbinders pinking circle dies, Kraft card blank, 
SRM sentiment sticker, Digital image - Mia Skating by Jane Beljo, pp - 
Cosmo Cricket, stickles, crackle medium and glossy accents - Ranger, 
Cloud die - PTI, pop dots, copics and adhesive.

It seems so strange making Holiday cards in August! but that's the challenge over on Paperplay Challenges this week.

We are very kindly sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.
The random winner will receive a $15 gift voucher for the online store.

I used a wonderful digi "Mia - Skating" by Jane Beljo for this card.  Layered and cut cardstock with my Big Shot for the background.  I then used a cloud die by Papertrey ink to create a glittery cloud - "full of snow".

I first used crackle accents and added peewee glitter to it.  After it dried the glitter was still very "loose" so I added a layer of glossy accents on top to "seal" it.  Also added a layer of glossy on top of the stickled heart on Mia's t-shirt and ice skates.

Great card, Deirdre - those icy greens and aquas mixed with pops of pink and red are fab. Glad this was Team A's challenge, though!!!

I love the die cut background - so many fun pp color and the torn edges really give it that nice touch. Very very cute!
