Christmas in August

Simon Says Stamp has Christmas as this weeks theme. That´s great! This year I´ll have some hand made cards for family and friends. It will be fun to hear what they think...or not, hehe.
The sketch is from Funky Fairies, at first I had some difficulties to sort out how I should use it. After testing different papers I´m quite pleased with the result and I´ll try the layout again. Now when I look at the card I only hear "She´ll be coming down the mountain when she comes" in my mind, lols.

Stamps and inks: Magnolia and Kortmakaren, Memories ink and a silvery one

Colouring: Derwent watercolours

Papers: flowery Origami paper, dotted one from Funky Fairies, all others are craft papers

Misc: star ribbon is Bazzills Just the edge that I covered with a DP, small stars Gütermann, snowflakes from local craft store, Rangers stickles and liquid pearls (it´s too fluid, smears and lives it´s own life), gems from Panduro, Dimesional Magic for pressie ribbon

Hope you all get a fab weekend!
