Christmas in July @ CD Sunday

 The challenge on CD Sunday this week is Christmas in July, so in blazing heat I have found myself looking for Christmas images. I used MCS Papercraft Library vol 9 Christmas with Bunny Snuffles & friends. I got this cd when they were on offer and hadn't looked at it before thinking it was just full of Snuffles images. So I was very pleasantly surprised to find these backgrounds on the cdrom, and as you can see got carried away and made three cards, not just one! I love the image of santa against a moon (can you tell) so printed both versions, the first being a DL card and the one below 5x7. I added a sentiment using the font Jane Austen and a little holly berry, adding diamond sparkles to the stars, moon, rooftops and trees.
 I then made this one which is very small only 3x3. I added the text using the alphabet from the cdrom and the little bow. Again lots of diamond sparkles, but not showing up in the photo.

Lovely cards! I think the font you added works much better with the images than the one from the CD
