Impression Obsession Christmas in July

No surprise, I was thrilled to see the IO Challenge theme is Christmas in July!  I have some beautiful IO Christmas stamps & dies.  Decided for this card to use my newest ornament die (DIE032-J) with some spray mists & Wink of Stella.  
Delicata Silvery Shimmer was used on the edges & the hanger was die cut from a scrap of silver paper.  The beautiful branch die (DIE021-N) was cut from white cardstock.  I used liquid glue & Rock Candy Distress Glitter to get the effect of snowy clumps.
Joy (C8790) was silver embossed on the gray panel which was attached to the textured white card.  I'm also entering Christmas Card Challenges, CropStop, Paru's Card Making Challenges & Die Cut Divas. Amazingly hot weather for us--hopefully some relief soon. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
