CHRISTMAS IN JULY! ONE CARD - TWO CHALLENGES ....

Hi peeps - hope you all had a fab. weekend!
Another beautiful LOTV stamp - another challenge. Well, two challenges actually, as this little Christmas card is entered into the LOTV Challenge - a sketch by the Lovely Bev, and the Bah Humbug Challenge - a Christmas Scene.
The cute little LOTV carol singers have been coloured with Copics (of course), edges inked with Adirondack Stonewashed and Denim, and the lamp has been masked with a circle before inking. 
The snow scene was created at great cost and with lots of skill,
by roughly tearing a load of white card!
Flowers made with the EK success Retro punches, plus a tiny snowflake punch in the centre (an old Woodware one) then finished with a pearl gem.  The 3 tiny layered snowflakes were also made with the Woodware punch.
Dots BP from Lasting Impressions, dark blue card - Bazzill. Loads of Glamour Dust sprinkled around, and Stampendous Fun Flock (with more glitter added), for the furry trim on the hats, and some on the snow.
Bye for now - have a wonderful week
Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Oh my goodness this is gorgeous. I've just bought this stamp - I really must remember how you did the light from the lamp post - that really works well.
So clever.

Amazing, inventive, creative and wonderful!!!!!!
Sylvia, you have to be the most creative card maker ever!
So many fabulous elements in your beautiful card including the falling snow on the background card.
Love the way you have changed the shape of the retro flowers by artful folding. :-)

Hi Sylvia. What's all this Christmas!!! I've not even had my Summer Hols yet and everyone seems to be celebrating Christmas today. The weather's not that bad surely.
It's a beautiful card, though. I must get some of the Christmas LOTV stamps, just a bit nearer December!!
Hope you are having a good week.
