Christmas in July

Hi everyone,
Beautiful day here in Tasmania, we are still in winter but the days are glorious.
Christmas in July has appeared again and I love making Christmas cards so her is my lastest effort. It doesn't show too well on the photo but I have put a layer of glitter under the red 'border' so that it shows beneath the punched holes. I am entering it into 6 challenges and they are:
Mo's Digital challenge - Chrismas in July
Charisma Cardz - Something with a tail
Paperplay Challenges - Anything goes
Annabelles Stamp Blog - A sketch + bling
Stamp Something - Christmas in July
Totally Papercrafts - Going to the movies (this image brings to mind the 1991 movie 'All I want for Christmas' I think this little chap is more than happy with his gift!

Materials used are:
Image - Mo's Digital Pencil
Coloured with Lyrs Aquacolour
Black holly paper is an old one fromPaper Patch.
I used an EK border punch and the holly was punched with a Francheville punch. The tiny red pearls are from Kaiser and everything else is from my stash.
