Christmas in July

I am a big fan of Charles Dickens and have a collection of his stories all in the original olde english style, so I have to have some peace and quiet around me when I start one of his books until my mind switches to olde english.

One of the most popular and well known would be "A Christmas Carol" and when I saw the Graphic 45 paper, I couldn't resist making some Christmas cards.  All these cards have been made using paper from the Graphic 45 "A Christmas Carol" collection.  (And a couple of background from my stash)

Our sponsor this month is 
"All Dressed Up"

Always wonderfully delicate and whimsical designs, we received "Follow your Dreams" and "Girl on a Bicycle" for our travel Theme.

I immediately thought of the song "Up Up and Away" and decided to use both the images in my digital layout.   (Please remember if entering the Digitally Sweet challenge, we are looking for Digital entries)

I created a gradient for the background, adding a couple of star brushes.  The images have been altered to white lines instead of black.  Words to the song and a grunge edging complete the layout.
