Christmas in July at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge

Hi everyone,
I'm scheduling this post, as alway since it goes live at 3 am my time. 
 We finally have rain today..yeah! Not often we cheer for rain but we are in such need 
of a good soaking it's worth celebrating.

Tomorrow I'm off to lunch with friends then we get to have our oldest granddaughter
for a couple of days and I can't wait.  She is such a happy teen and we enjoy her company.

Now..on to my post.  Today starts a new challenge at 
where our super talented Norma is hosting.

This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous

Today's card is a little different from the pastels I've used the past couple of times.

is all dressed for the ballet.

Tree on the left is Dee's Distinctively Snow Covered Tree die
Tree on the right is MB Magnificent Pine

Thanks for stopping by today.

I tend to forget that placing elements that go outside of the card base is an option. You've put together items I wouldn't have thought of combining, and I really like the result, so much to look at!
