Christmas in July with Bugaboo Stamps

It's hard to believe we're already in mid-July.   But we are.  Every year I enjoy playing in the week long Catch the Bug Christmas in July Contest.  Bugaboo Digital Stamps are among my favorites.  They have fun images and I like the bold outlines, which make paper piecing and fussy cutting easier.  

The Contest actually started Sunday with a sketch challenge.  We were at the second day of my grandson's baseball tournament  (They won 2 games and lost 2 games this week.) so I've gotten a bit of a late start.  
I've used Bugaboo Digi Image Christmas Mouse - candy cane for my Sunday entry. 
I printed it on white and kraft so I could do some paper piecing.  The sentiment is from a piece of DP.  I used a die cut for the scalloped oval, some glitter gel for her bow, a few glitter dots and candies.

I am entering this in the following:
Catch the Bug Sunday Challenge - CIJ Sketch
Glitter and Sparkle Challenge #93 - Anything Goes
Quirky Crafts Challenge #14 - Christmas in July with die cuts
Robyn's Fetish Challenge #220 - Christmas in July
The Glory of Christmas Challenge #37 - Anything Christmas Goes
My Time to Craft Challenge #253 - Paper Piecing
