More mid-month inspiration for CCAYR

As we're almost halfway through the month of July it's time for some mid-month inspiration from the team at CCAYR for the July challenge: non-traditional Christmas colours. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of other members of the team and click here to join in with your own creations.

So this is my second design card using a paper background from Echo Park winer wishes, covered with a patterned piece of vellum secured at the corners and covered with felt buttons from Poundland. The image is one of my favourite snowman stamps, Stampotique by Jo Capper-Sandon, inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pens. The strip of paper and the background of the stamps are from my Christmas scraps.
