Peace Love & Joy - FFFC #217 'Christmas in July'

Hello.  Happy Friday!

A new challenge starts today at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  The subject for the next fortnight is the ever popular 'Christmas in July' theme.  I hope you'll play along with us.  Visit the challenge blog to get complete details and also to check out what my teammates have created to inspire you to join us.     

Here's the card that I came up with.
