Christmas in July

I was so pleased when Anne from Oh La La Challenge blog emailed and asked me to be their guest designer for two months!!! I have received some gorgeous files to work with, just hadn't realised how beautiful and versatile the OhLaLa cds where. The challenge this month is Christmas in July and this is my first DT card. What a cute little Santa. He is decoupaged and well glittered and I even added red glitter to the berries on the holly paper. The card is finished with a big satin bow. Hope you all get time to join in these wonderful challenges and thanks very much Anne for choosing me as your guest designer.
I am entering this into these challenges;
1. Pear Tree Designs - glitter and sparkle
2. Magical Crafts - Christmas in July
