Christmas in July

Welcome to first Christmas card made this year and it's for this months challenge at Aud Sentiments.
The theme is Christmas in July and our sponsor is QKR Stampede and this is one of their images.

The basis of this card is black and white, with die cut layers and and embossed background. The flowers are die cut pointsettia's highlighted with black soot distress ink. The have coloured my snowman with pencils in a rather sketchy way, something out of the ordinary for me. I hope you like him.
