Christmas in July?

Hello everyone,

I hope you are enjoying the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - there are some beautiful cards on display, so I recommend hopping over.

I have a card to share for the Stamp a Faire Challenge no 10. I wasn't able to play along on Saturday but it seems the last challenge was delayed, so I could have a try today. "The challenge is to add a stamped focal point over a stamped background, all in the same layer! There is really a lot of opportunity here for some fun mixing and matching!" I decided to make my first Christmas card of the year for this one:-


I used Snowfall to stamp the background, Believe for the tree and Snowflake Serenade for the sentiment, all stamped on Spring Rain card. All these stamp sets really do mix well. I'm also going to enter this card into the Christmas in July challenge at Paper Creations , Craft your Passion, and Crafty Creations .
Thanks for looking.
Hugs
