'Christmas in July' card

Still working at my Christmas cards!   This week was quite easy to be inspired.  A couple of challenges want Christmas cards and the sketch from another fit this theme well.  I was pleased with this card and might even 'mass produce' this one for this year.

Mojo Monday 198 ~ follow sketch 
jingle belles ~ starts or stripes forever
Celebrate the Occasion ~ "Christmas in July (no red)"!!! * *now when I even hear the word Christmas, I see red - no, I don't get mad, I really see the color because to me Christmas is red & green, so this was a bit out of the norm for me, but I was able to do it. :D  They are having a DT call so head over there if you are interested in that, too!


Thank you, jingle belles, for picking this as a shining star this week!!!!!

What I did...
~Kraft paper A2 card
~Christmas paper from my stash
~computer generated sentiment cut with 2" round punch
~2 1/4" scallop punch
~star cut in MTC
~yellow strip embossed with Swiss Dots
~ribbon from my stash

Thanks for looking!!!!

Congrats on making top 3 at JB! I agree with L&S, the star is a terrific focal point. I love blue Christmas cards; this one is particularly gorgeous.
