Christmas in June!


I've made my second Christmas card of the year using the sketch over at the Sketch & Stash Challenge where you also have to use unused stash.
The stamps are from Magnolia and this is the first time I've used the Tilda which has been stamped in Memento and coloured with Copic markers. The edges have been inked with tea dye distress ink. Most of the papers are from a kit by Cosmo Cricket which I only received yesterday. The poinsettia embellishments have been made with a Quickutz die which I've had for years but never used. I've also used a Martha Stewart border punch and a Nellie Snellen circle.
This is also fits the challenge over at Fab's Big Christmas Cards Challenge this week where you cannot use brads or ribbon with the option of adding a bird and the Christmas Card Challenge.
