Christmas in July

Trying to get a start on the cards that I will need for Christmas.
I love this cuddlebug folder (snowflakes). I added pearls and a couple of foam glitter flakes. Adding a few glitter brads to the center of the foam flakes just added a bit of pop

Summer Sun

I used the new color Daffodil Delight too help create this card. The main card has tone on tone of daffodil delight.
