Christmas in July at Casual Fridays

It's Christmas in July over at Casual Fridays Challenge This will get everybody going thinking about their Christmas cards early..... maybe?

Here's my card for the challenge. I've made a little lantern card with some SU die cuts Sleigh Ride. I used a rotating color battery operated tea light in my card so I've added a couple of colors. It's really quite pretty with the revolving light. After I thought I was finished I decided to add a few more embossed snowflakes and a rhinestone to the snowflake cutout. The card folds down to a 4.5" x 4.5.
I used a bit of dimensional tape for the sentiment to prop up the back. I added Stickles for snow. The inside of the circle is covered with velum and I used my white pen to randomly add white dots for snowflakes. I used some pressure making the dots so that they look slightly raised.

Today my card is for the Create Along with Us challenge at Papertrey Ink. For details check it out HERE My inspiration card is Nichole Heady's pretty summer fruit card. I love the colors.
And this is my card
It looks more blue than it really is. I used Aqua mist cardstock and Hawaiian Shores ink. The birds are from Polka Dot parade. Die cut is from Top Dog Dies.
