More Christmas in July - Christabelle

Hi there Crafty Friends, how are you all, hope you are enjoying this great weather, but staying safe!! My little bit of inspiration today for Digi Doodle Studios, should hopefully cool you down as it's still in keeping with our 'Christmas in Julymonthly challenge theme!! Here I am using the gorgeous little image Christabelle.

Taking a 7x7 scalloped square base card, I matt and layered glitter card, embossed centura pearl card along with a ribbon border. The image, I printed on to watercolour card and die cut out. I coloured it using Promarkers and adding some loose glitter for glistening snow effect! In the top left corner, I added a poinsettia flower, created using die cut green vellum,  silver glitter leaves and white centura pearl flourishes. Finishing off with various sparkly gems!!
