Christmas in July

Good morning, Saturday again and that means time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. As you've probably guessed we want to see Christmas creations this week. I used one of my very favourite stamps to make this card, one of the first stamps I bought online from Art Journey. I think this little girl is so innocent and beautiful! The card was actually really quick to make as the image fitted almost perfectly onto a frame on a piece of dp (All is Bright MME) so I inked her up with black Stayzon and stamped her on! I cut around the frame, distressed and inked the edges and layered it onto another piece of dp from the same pad. The diecut fir branch is MB and the 'peace &joy' are Sizzix. I added some lace, part of a brown felt doily and a few pearls.
There are some beautiful creations from the rest of Team Jacky over on the Challenge blog, so just click  here to pop over and check them out! Why not make a Christmas card'll be so glad you did when December looms closer! Our sponsor this week is Wild Orchid so you could be the lucky winner of a fabulous prize!
Thanks so much for visiting, have a great weekend!
