Christmas in July Challenges

A lot of the challenge blogs are thinking Christmas this week. I created this Christmas card for Giovana's Challenge on Stamp TV to do any shape you want, but not A2 size.
I made this circle card using a Fiskars cutter---one of my great garage sale finds. Added a precut patterned snowflake, a stamped and sponged tag die, and ribbons. How simple is that! Remember to fold card stock before cutting and leave uncut at the very top so you have a fold.
Stamps: GKD "Festive Frame"
Ink: Memento Rhubarb Stalk and Green     
Papers: Red CS from stash
             Basic Grey "Figgy Pudding" Collection
Fiskars Circle Maker
Spellbinders: Ribbon Tag Trio
Ribbon from Dollar Tree
Challenges:
Stamp TV Christmas Challenge: Do a shape card.
Going Grey with Scrap Creations: Christmas in July
Tuesday Throwdown: Christmas in July
Little Red Wagon:  Christmas in July
