Little Tangles Challenge - June

Hi there everyone and welcome to our June challenge at Little Tangles. We have the most delicious colour combo to inspire you this month:

These colours are so beautiful and totally remind me of Summertime, especially with the photo of iceblocks above it. I decided to go with the 'Summer' feeling but add a Christmas twist. We have Christmas in the middle of Summer here in New Zealand so its all about bbq's, salads and ice-creams, so thought these colours would make a great Christmas card:

I used two different sized solid triangle stamps from the 'Scandinavian Prints'  stamp set and my trusty MISTI to create this design. 

I started off by cutting a panel of white CS slightly smaller than the card front. I had no idea about the pattern before I started, just winged it as I went along. I stamped each image twice using a range of inks from Waffle Flower, Hero Arts and Altenew. The panel was then popped up on foam tape on the card front.

The sentiment (from the same stamp set) was simply stamped on a strip of white CS and put on foam tape as well. I then decided to add a bit of bling to each of the trees by adhering small gold sequins (from Neat and Tangled).
I'm really happy with my 'Summery Christmas card' and think I will make a few more!!

I have three challenges I would like to enter:
