Oh Christmas Tree

This is my final Christmas card for a few days - promise!  This one is a Red Gingham stamp called 'Oh Christmas Tree' which again is available from Little Claire Designs.  For my first card I used blue snowflake paper from Craft Creations and some pale blue card and ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Red Gingham Christmas sentiments pack.
This second card is the same stamp but in a red and green colour scheme.  The paper is Craft Creations and the sentiment from the Red Gingham set as before.  The base card is from Craftwork Cards.

I'd like to enter these cards in the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - 'Christmas in July' (second entry)
Paper Creations Ink - 'Christmas in July' (second entry)
Sweet Stamps - 'winter blues' (first card)
Stamping Boutique - 'cool colours' (first card)
Crafty Pad - 'Christmas in July'
I Love Promarkers - 'Christmas in July'
