Christmas In July

Hey there,

A festive preparation has started in every blog and corner. People are creating cards in advance to avoid celebration rush. Even the stores are offering "Christmas in July" sale. Can you beat that? :)
I also thought of joining the fun :). So, heres my share of preparation:

The beautiful digi is from Amber Ink. Isn't it gorgeous? She got plenty of the likes in her kitty, just hop onto her blog :) and you will be amazed. As of the card, both the images were printed separately and I positioned the girlie as if she is ornamenting the tree. I placed her with pop-dots for some natural impression. And for some added sparkle, I made the swirls of light around the stem of the tree. I used extensive amount of blings and glitters. The edges were inked with glitter glue. I cut out sentiment in a banner shape and dab it all with 3D paint in glittering gold. It is attached to the card with cute butterfly brads. 

Here is an another look of my card.
A little closer one :)
