A Pastel Christmas (in July!)

Oh no...vacation didn't cure me from my current obsession with making Christmas cards. Nope! I was happy to come back and find several challenges having to do with Christmas in July. While I would normally not combine Christmas challenges (because my goal is to have a lot of cards before December) given the fact that I'm struggling to catch up from vacation, both at home and work, and I'm having trouble getting back in the cardmaking mode, I decided to combine all the Christmas card challenges this week into this card:
Here's a close up so you can see the sparkle (hopefully!)
