Christmas in July!

Hi friends!
Believe it or not, this is the second post in a row with a card just for fun for challenges! I love summer vacation!!! :) I used a wonderful poinsettia stamp and die set by Waffle Flower for the focal point of the card (also the sentiment comes from the same set) and then used a Catherine Pooler cover plate for the fun snowflake background -it has a retro feel, right? This WF poinsettia set is one of my best purchases from last year, a definite favorite in my stash. I colored the poinsettia with Copics and added some detail with gel pens and Wink of Stella. This card pleased my eye without any embellies or paint splatters so I just left those out this time! :) 

This card is for:

Double Trouble Challenge: Christmas in July (no twist of bow for me!)

I hope you liked my card and thank you for popping by!
