Christmas in July

It is another hot one here in Arizona! Uff-Daa!!! So I thought I would make another Christmas card to cool me off a bit :) This is another for Just Rite Stamps and also for The Shabby Tea Room Both are having Christmas in July Challenges this week.
This is my card:
I love to use black velvet paper for Christmas cards! I used one of last years JRS Christmas sets for my image. Colored with Copics, also used: ribbon & lace from my stash, MS snowflake punch, Button is PTI, Spellbinders & cuttle bug embossing folder. That does it for this one...Have a nice day & thanks for visiting!!

This is so pretty and oh, so elegant! I love the color scheme, and what luxury that black velvet paper adds. Lovely job with the stamping and coloring, and the embossing is fabulous. Thanks for sharing this with us at TSTR.
