Christmas In July

At CI Paint, we are celebrating 'Christmas in July'!  Thinking about cooler temperatures is such a treat, considering the heat and humidity we've been having!

 This card includes some stitching and lots of glitter.  I tried something new and added some gauze material under the image.  I like the softness it adds.  My handmade flowers are painted with CI Paint 'Ivory and Rustic Red'.  The image is from A Day For Daisies and the stick pin is from a swap.

 Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
