Christmas in August

I wasn't sure if I'd get this posted at all today - mega computer problems that I won't bore you with! This one is for our new challenge at CACB and our theme this time was Christmas in August. I wasn't feeling too Christmassy, but I enjoyed making it anyway and it's another for the box and they all help. I put it all together in Craft Artist. The bp is from the embossed dots brights collection and the garland is a digi stamp that has been treated with a mixture of colouring and paper piecing. The peel offs around the edges are from Rhapsody in Blue - all are from Crafty Ann's. The text was done in Craft Artist and the swirl is from It's all in the wood from Miriams. The 'glass' piece behind the garland was done in Craft Artist.
I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Thank you for dropping by today and I hope you'll be ready to take a break from the summer (assuming you've had one, unlike some of us!) and share a Christmas project with us.
