Christmas in July Card

Hello Bloggers,

A Christmas card today. No July can pass without one! :)

After staring at this beautiful green paper for a very very long time I decided I wanted to make a card that shows it off. Properly.

So, here is the only patterned paper I've used on this card. The white layer is rather pierced.

The words Happy and Wishes come from a Happy Birthday set, but I replaced the word birthday with Winter from a totally different set. :)
