Christmas in July

Hi guys, 
Well summer is finally here, let's hope it lasts, and here's me putting a Christmas card on my blog!! lol 
Over at Addicted To Stamps challenge our theme this time is 
Christmas in July
Did you guess? lol

This card is also for my DT  Mid week card at Totally Tilda where the challenge is to use a Magnolia sentiment, remember it must be by Magnolia
This adorable Magnolia stamp is from an older collection but I love her, she is a dream to colour,talking of which she's been coloured with my distress re-inkers as is the background too,
For the edges I've used some fabby Snow Tex, think I'm finally getting the hang of this stuff!

All my paper edges are distressed with my distress tool and edged with vintage photo distress ink,
I've used small and larger stars on the background too,
I've made my own blue colour for the cream seam binding using DI's, great fun!
