Christmas in June!

Hi , a very lovely day to you all.
A nice chance to make use of my Magnolia Christmas stamps.
when I saw this ,I had to get it its too cute!!!
I have cut out a frame and layered a background paper with tree trunks.
Some of the trunks are green in colour , so I inked them in blue momento ink pen.
Wanted to keep it in the red ,white and blue colour scheme .
Have coloured the image with distress inks and momentos pens and added with stickles
and buttons on snowy.
Have used a circle label stamp from HA,the red paper shape is from the same collection paper.
Have added the feathers and 2 strip of paper to cover the spine of the feather.
At the bottom of the card, I have added RRR june ribbon pack red ribbon ,love the
 collection of blue, red and whites (very nice deep red and navy blue)

The paper for the inside of the card is from DCWV winter blue stack
And the paper with the sentiment is a cut out piece from the frame on the cover.
a good way for me to recycle the paper : )
