Christmas In July

Hello everyone.
Well I have had my op, there was a few complications the op should have taken fourty minutes but it took three hours  and I was in recovery for two hours hubby was panicking (bless).
Thank you for all the best wishes I recieved  and thanks Jill for the Cyber hug (sweet)  I am still very sore but recovering well.
I didn't think that I would be entering the Christmas In July Challenge so I have suprised myself although it has taken me three days on  and off to make my creation.

For the Christmas In July Challenge at TeddyBo & Co I have made a Twisted Easel Card.
I found the tutorial for the card over at Hazel's blog this talented lady designs for TeddyBo & Co.
I have used Green backing card  and the papers are First Editions Festive Treats.
I have coloured TeddyBo image 148 with Polychromos pencils.
I have added Blue  Pink  and Green stickles to the ornaments.
The Merry Christmas sentiment was a freebie from C&P  and the White  pom pom trim I got from ebay.
For the base of the card i have punched Green card with Martha Stewart Arch Lattice edger punch.
The snowflake is by Papermania I stuck it on to White  card  and cut around it then added a Dovecraft brad to the centre I used double sided sticky pads to raise the snowflake up.
The Green rhinestones in the top  and bottom right side of the card are by Papermania.
Thanks for letting me enter my card into the Challenge.
Until next time.
Big Hugs.

Here is my finished twisted easel card.
