Ready for a Christmas party

 My project
Sketch from Incy Wincy

Good Day

Officially it is the last day of our winter school holidays. Today I was inspired by the Christmas in July challenges. I wanted to do something with snowflakes(since it is a rear commodity in my country), but not the normal thing, so I'm joining in with the ruby red from Die Cuttin' Divas. A bit of contrast. I saw some great ideas in blogland that I wanted to try out. Though It is not so visible on my photo. I used heat glitter embossing on my snowflake corners and then added some glitter all around the edge of the red designer paper from the mistletoe collection, from BoBunny. The border emboss & punch is from Fiskar. I also used a frosted paper for my frame, made with die cut - Fleur de Lis Rectangles from Spellbinder. The digi is Ballroom Sassy from Sassy Studio Designs and she looks ready for a Christmas party. I'll also use the opportunity to join Patrice at her Old Back Porch for some more exposure. Hope you'll join too.
