Christmas in July

As July is approaching to its end, I feel stronger and stronger that I need to start my Christmas card stash.  I just got the beautiful Frosted paper and can't wait to play with it!

The card is based on the sketch from Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge:

This is a kind of sketch that I normally would not want to try - the three panels intimate me!  I somehow managed to conquer it, but I am not used to the lighting in my new craft corner, so the picture does not really do justice here.  Nevertheless it looks pretty neat - simple with the die cut sentiment Merry Christmas and the snowflakes were filled with silver glitz.

My card is also entering the challenge at Crafty Hazelnut Christmas challenge - Anything goes and Merry Monday challenge.

I always look forward to Christmas and making Christmas cards appears to help me get to Christmas sooner.  Do you think I'm too crazily in love with Christmas?

Thanks for stopping by!
