Christmas in July!

Today is my first challenge for the Polka Doodles blog, and it's a Christmas make with a little bit of added twinkle. All the of the elements used are from the Polka Doodles Work and Play Festive Hollybobs collection - I love this red polka dot paper, and it's the third time I've used it! The traditional-style postcard was my inspiration for the card and I decided to run with the traditional theme, using classic red and green, kraft card, natural cork and a co-ordinating sentiment tag.
For the bling, it just had to be gorgeous red gem berries on the holly, but I also added tacky glue and some iridescent glitter to the Christmas tree for some added interest and dimension. I tried to do it across the bottom of the branches in a snow effect, and I think it looks very pretty! Hope you like it - I'm now off to de-glitter the house ;)
