Christmas in Summer

OK , its not summer here, its sposed to be spring but we're experiencing another cold wet day . Don't think I'll be heading out to training tonight! 
 Anyway, over at Phindy's Place the challenge is Christmas in Summer and I've used Jingle Bear from Phindys.  The paper I've used is Little Yellow Bicycle and the holly is MM ( from Trace's stash!) I coloured the image with copics, brushed the background with SU chalks ( yep, I dug them out and decided they must be used once or twice!!!!) and added stickles wherever I could. The white trim is from a local shop and the sentiment is SU.



I'm also entering this in Christmas Card Challenges  - Sparkle
