Christmas in August? You gotta be kidding me....

OK, I struggle with blog titles, and I really do feel that Christmas comes far too early each year, but I guess we all have to started making our Christmas cards sooner rather than later.
Very quick card this evening, made with some My Minds Eye papers which handily came free with a craft magazine this month. Gotta love those freebies.... 
I have never really got to grips with chipboard shapes - in my world they have no known purpose, but as the magazine came with matching chipboard shapes I figured I should at least try and use them. So I chose the smallest one I could find and tried to hide it on the card.....
The red paper at the bottom does have a subtle snowflake pattern, but I must admit I am tempted to jazz it up a bit - might have to stamp some random snowflakes on it later.
As usual, I can't make a card without entering a couple of challenges, and tonight is no exception :)
Christmas Inspirations - Clean & Simple
Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch
