Christmas in July.

I'm starting to stock pile a small amount of Christmas cards now which is very good as I am usually still making mine on Christmas Eve! And I love making Christmas cards because you can be very over the top and add loads of glitter and bling!
The one I made today has a moderate amount of glitter and bling and a gorgeous little digi stamp downloaded from Pink Gem web site. Used some Christmassy backing papers and my Promarkers. This is for the Pink Gem challenge this month here. The challenge was to follow the sketch and the optional extra was to decorate the inside. Here is the sketch

And here is my creation

I made an easel card so I guess the decoration in side would be under the flap - like so -

I then decided to mount the card on a drawer - a good place to put a christmas pressie or some choccies I think

I would like to enter my card/box into the following challenges
Pink Gem - Sketch
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - A Very Beary Merry Xmas
