Christmas in July at Bugaboo

Welcome have you seen that Bugaboo is doing their week long Christmas in July.
I so love doing this as it helps me get my Christmas box looking so much more ready and also kick starts me into building my box up.
My card is for Day 1 which is Sparkle & Shine.
 Sorry about the light on the picture but it is night time and hard to get the light right to show all the glitter in the day light.
The image is Eggbert Winter

I cut a snowflake background with a large die and then stick it to a square of double sided sheet then covered it in Tonic silver glitter. This gave me a background and also a glitter boarder. Added snowflake dies in blue and white
A stuitched curved boarder with some ribbon on.
Stitched tonic circle for the image and the sentiment which is a clear stamp
Some pearls for the centres of the snowflake.
Image has been coloured with my promarkers and I kept it to the 2 colours of brown and blue.
Well hope you like. 
Have you joined in the fun yet still time.
