Christmas In July

This card made it to Top 3 at Digi Choosday!

Hello Bloggers,
Christmas in July is the Theme for so many challenges this month! So here I am with a purple card :)
 I took a thousand pictures of this card trying to catch good lighting and let you see the gesso stencilled sentiment, but the unexpectedly shiny on camera silver baubles worked hard against it. This angle looks more readable:
And a special shot featuring the flowers I love so much - Nellie Snellen Floral Punches:
