Christmas in July

I thought I'd make a start on my christmas cards after seeing so many wonderful christmas cards on everyones blogs this week.
I've used Rupert with Presents from the fabulous Stamping Dragon Designs, I've coloured him with my promarkers and used a sakura gelly glaze silver pen on some of the baubles and ribbons. i have mounted him on red bazill cardstock and added a green snowflake from my stash with a red gem on the top.
The papers are from DCWV stack Christmas Wishes which you can find here. I finished it off with some red gems in the corners.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Cards for Men - Christmas in July challenge 14
Cute Card Thursday - Get a Head Start challenge 121
Fab N Funky - It's Christmas challenge 31
Magical Crafts - Christmas in July - challenge 19
Totally Stampalicious - A dash of this, a pinch of that, and don't forget a splash of RED!
Friends Having Fun - sketch challenge 4
