Christmas in July

Hello everyone, this weeks challenge here at My Craft Spot is "Christmas in July", so to continue with the inspiration I have a lovely Christmas card to share with you, this card is also being posted over at My Craft Spot.
I used the Merry Christmas and the Mistletoe stamp sets, as well as the Small Alphabet metal die.
The tree image is from Miss Kate Cuttables the image can be found -HERE, the oval is a Spellbinder die lacy Ovals.
I love all the glitter and sparkle and card, and the non-tratidional colors. I tend to avoid glitter because of the mess, but oh when I see my finished product I love the look of the glitz and glamor it adds.
For the tree I've used Recollections Tinsel Glitter, the snowflakes each have fine glitter.
The sentiments that I used are from the Merry Christmas stamp set.
I used a woodgrain embossing folder for the tree trunk.
The stars and snowflakes are cut using the Small Alphabet metal dies, I added glitter to all those tiny dies.
The crinkle ribbon is Petal Pink, and the pink Jute twine glued on top my bow.  
Side view of the card.
 The inside sentiment is from the Merry Christmas stamp set and the tiny snowflakes if from the Mistletoe stamp set.
All stamp sets, small alphabet metal dies, crinkle ribbon and jute string that I used on my project can be purchased in the My Craft Spot shop -HERE.
