Oswalda does Christmas

Christmas in July seems to have affected the weather here in not so sunny Wigan! Would you believe that I've had to put the central heating on to try and dry the washing? I'm certainly not impressed although I think my son and all the troops out in Afghanistan would appreciate a bit of cooler weather. The temperature is about 35C in the middle of the night reaching as high as 57C during the day. They are seriously silly temperatures

On to my card which I'm entering into 2 challenges calling for Christmas in July

SundayswithCrissy challenge #7
IlovePromarkers challenge #25

I could quite happily done lots more layers of decoupage using this image but I might have had some difficulty in finding an envelope the right size!

A side view showing the layers of the decoupage

I used
The Oswalda digi stamp from Crissy at Squigglefly
Background papers from Kameo Kards
Sentiment from Craft Creations
Promarkers in cool grey 2 & 3, amber, saffron, gold, sunkissed pink, satin, ruby, lush green, true blue, blue pearl and pastel blue
Thank you for taking the time to look at my cards and I look forward to reading your comments
