Snowflakes - in this heat!

Today I've been making a Christmas card and melting in this hot, hot weather!
Christmas in July is the theme for the CD Sunday Challenge this week which is why I've been making a Christmas card.
I'm also entering this card into an new blog challenge that started this week - Through the Purple Haze.
I've used a card style that I'd seen in a craft magazine and adapted to suit my needs. It's an easel card topped with a huge rosette. The snowflake paper is from the Do Crafts digital designer range - Papermania Christmas Past. I love snowflake designs and have loads of things in my stash with them on.


Through the Purple Haze has 2 challenges going at the moment and I'm entering the 'Anything Goes' challenge. In the other challenge you have to use something by Indigo Blue and I only have their gilding flakes so can't enter that one.

I came third with the above card.
