Christmas in July?!

I'm gonna shake things up a bit today
and post a Christmas card!
It's never too early to get started on making Xmas cards.
Before I know it, December is here and I'm buying ready made cards
from Target to ashamedly send out to everyone.
Been there.

So there is a really awesome challenge blog called,
Every week is a new Christmas themed challenge that helps
keep you inspired to make all those holiday cards.
This week the challenge is "Heavy Metal" and the sponsor
is Kenny K Downloads

Now with a challenge like Heavy Metal, I figured it would
be a breeze! I grew up on the metal music scene, but once
I started digging for metal Christmas embellishments, I started
to worry. I found some things to work with though.

I pulled it all together and made this really cute card! 

The image is from Tiddly Inks. Too cute.
I made her fur on her outfit all sparkly with glitter.

These metal snowflake charms were all I could
manage to find as far as metal embellishments.
The centers of each one were a blue pattern that didn't
match, so I added a pile of Stickles to cover the offending,
mismatched centers. Voila!

There is still a little time to make the current challenge
at CSAYL. Kenny K images are up for grabs!
