A Little Bit of Christmas in June

Well it's June... but here in Australia we often have "Christmas in June" or "Christmas in July" events as the weather is more conducive to eating hearty food and sitting in front of a fire then... you know, "traditional" Christmas stuff.  I love Christmas... in June, July OR December :-))  Thought  I'd share a Christmas card today, nothing to do with it being June... it's another one out of my drafts from Christmas last year!  It's a "wobbler" card, I love these things; they jazz very simple card up just that little bit - making this card was FUN
 I used the gorgeous Christmas Tree Guy from Karen's Doodles, coloured with Copics, fussy cut then added to a Spring Wobbler (really will have to get some more of these... or have a go at a bit of DIY, yikes)  I added Ranger Glossy Accents to the eyes and Stardust Stickles to the fur on his hat... the nose is a Sparklet from Kaisercraft. 
I fussy cut him, then mounted him on his Wobbler (!) here he is wobbling away :-))
The white panel behind the image was embossed with an Embossalicious Snowflake folder.  The papers are from my (ancient!) stash, I think the red one is Kaisercraft.  The red, green and gold matting are all from my stash too.
The sentiment is from Craftworks Cards.  That's IT... told you is was a "simple" card!!
 I used the same basic layout for the inside, though I forgot to take a photo of that... it WAS Christmas, fair bit going on!
I thought I'd take this opportunity to announce that I've been lucky enough to be picked as one of the inaugural DT Members for Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - my first card as official DT member will be up on Wednesday when the new challenge starts, but this card would fit the challenge - coz all you have to do is use Patterned Paper somewhere on your creation,... so I thought Id show you just how easy it is to make something suitable for the challenge.  Hope you can pop back then and see what I came up... until then Happy Crafting :-)
