christmas in july challenge

now this was scary for me.  tempted me to start on my christmas cards....but i resisted and only made 3.  whew, that was close.

three snowflake brads, heated and then embossed with pearl EP...tiny blue rhinestone in each center.....
the polar bears are made using punches....and nesties...oval for mama polar bear, circle for baby....1/2 in circles for ears and a narrow oval for the snouts.  sentiments from PTI

cuttlebug embossed snowflakes background inked in craft white and then dusted with ultra fine clear glitter .... a bit of sparkle on the bears faces....eyes made with small and teensy black brads.....baby is popped up on both cards

for this one i made a "wreath" using two nestability shapes and then glued buttons on....edge made with new tim holtz edge die.....sentiment PTI.  tulle bow tops the wreath....odd colors, coral (not quite as garish as shown in the picture) and mossy green...paper from an old paper pad that has numbers on it....but i think it works
