Christmas in August

Here's a card made for this month's Lili of the Valley Challenge. It closes tomorrow so just one day to spare. I used the sweet Red Squirrels Pine Tree stamp which I won in last year's LOTV Advent Giveaway.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and then mounted it onto white card which had been embossed with a Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. Red DP and snowflake ribbon from stash and I used white glitter card to die-cut some snowflakes and make a snowy grass panel at the base of the tree. Sentiment is a rub-on, mounted onto the same red DP as before.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
