Blue Christmas (In July!)

Hellooooo!!  I'm so glad you stopped by today!  It's HOT here in southwest Missouri, so when I saw several challenges with "Christmas In July" I thought it sounded really good!  I had so much fun with this card.  This little girl from Whoopsi Daisy is so cute!


 The light blue 5x7 card base is from Wal-Mart and embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder.  The ribbon is also from Wal-Mart; the pearls are Premier Quality and the rose was in my stash.  The label is cut from Lacey Labels and the sentiment was computer generated.  Isn't she adorable?  I colored her with colored pencils and pop-dotted her on a larger cut of the same label from Lacy Labels.  This label is cut from white glitter paper.                      
The "fur" on her outfit is also glittered.  I tried to get a good picture to show all the sparkle.



 The label is also pop-dotted.  Lots of sparkle, texture and dimension on this card and except for the card base, everything is from scraps!



The inside is finished out with another cut of the same label and a bit of ribbon.  The stamp is from Stampabilities.
Well, I felt a little cooler while I was making this card, but it's just as hot as it was before! :)  I hope you like this project, please leave me a comment or two!  I enjoy hearing from you!
