Christmas in July - Snow Hugs

It's Christmas in July for me today, trying to think cool thoughts!  I've been inspired by this week's Card Patterns Sketch 123, and the various Christmas in July postings around blogland.  I'm also entering this in the Scrap Our Stash July challenge, which is Red, White, and Blue (just ignore that teensy bit of green, pretty please?).

My card uses Rogue Redhead Designs' Snow Hugs plate, along with the front cover of Basic Grey's Blitzen collection.  Yep, I seriously dug into some old stash for this one!  Here's a little pic of what I'm talking about:
I used the tiny product pictures for my paper piecing.  For all of the details, please have a hop on over to the Rogue Redhead Designs blog.  And don't forget about the very first ever Rogue Redhead Designs Rebel Challenge, too.... there's a prize to be had, my friends!!

AND.... don't forget to enter for a chance to win my Bluebird Blog Candy!  Click on the picture in my sidebar to take you to the prize post. :)
