Creative Inspirations #64 Christmas In July

Hi all today our new challenge at
Our sponsor is

Here is my DT card
I have used an 8x8 white card base which I distressed with TH Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges, the papers are all Bearlymine and have been mounted onto silver mirri card.  I was going to use a Tilda image but then remembered that I have a huge selection of Messy Rabbit so went with Christmas Messy Rabbit in his lovely warm sweater.  
I stamped him twice the second one I cut out and coloured then 3d'd him onto the base image, I used my scalloped Nestie's to cut the image and sliver frame, the silver mirri frame I also embossed with the snow fall Cuttlebug embossing folder.
I punched out the snowflakes, used die cut silver mirri corners then used different circle punches for the flowers.  The leaves have also been punched using a Woodware leaf punch, I distressed around the image with TH Shabby Shutters ink also added some lace.
I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I hope that you like my card but for some wonderful inspiration you must check out the other DT projects they are superb.
I do hope that you will come join our challenge at
Creative Inspirations.
