Bugaboo: Christmas in July

Welcome to Catch the Bug's Christmas in July!  We have a fun week planned for you; lots of amazing challenges to play along with and amazing creations from the team to inspire you.  It's going to be a great week!

Today's theme is "Some of My Best Friends are Flakes!".  (That's right, we want to see snowmen and snowflakes!)  I was so excited for today because this type of card is one of my very most favorite to make!  I went with a fun image that I hadn't colored up before and paired it with a color challenge and a sketch challenge.  I've added some glitter to the "snow" in the image and used lots of glittery snowflakes and Swarovski flatbacks for embellishing.
