Christmas in August A Quick Quirky Reminder!

It's Quirky reminder time. The Challenge is, Christmas in August (with a twist) I've also made a cheesy wheel, find that on the challenge blog, for you to add extra 'things' to your creations.
 This time I've made a Christmas card using  a Bugaboo image, Sign-it/Christmas/Edward, used non-traditional colours, (The ribbon is purple, although it looks blue)and the digi is already a 'scene' as you can actually buy him without the balloons if you want to.
I've added embossed triangle peel-offs to some of the corners. I've also 3D-ed the elephant, little chick and the balloons, to make them pop. This time I've used lots a light greys and pinks to colour the image using Promarkers.
The typing on the 'list'  I did on the computer using Paint-Net,  which is a free download, just Google the name.
 All the papers (inside and out) are by Pink Petticoat. (They are Christmas papers even though they aren't what I call 'normal colours')
I've also added gems, a string of tiny pearls and loads of Stickles Glitter! There's also some gold peel off strips in a kind of triangle pattern.
I did intend the card to have the frilly bit along the bottom, stuck on all the papers and the peel-offs and then... tried to open it've guessed, I'd stuck everything on the wrong way! Never mind. I think it looks better this way!
 The fonts I used are freebies JandaHappy Day   and (heading the 'list') Estelle Black SF (you'll get a pop up here asking if you'd like to join their mailing list and get a free font everyday) That's it I think!  Pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in!! Hope you're having a lovely August Bank Holiday! Thank you for stopping by!
