Christmas in July again

It is kind of funny that many challenges right now are either "Christmas in July" or "summer vacation"!  Can't get much more opposite than that!!   I'm currently in Christmas mode.

Challenges...
Merry Monday with a twist - use any past sketch and make up to 4 cards this month
jingle belles JB:12:15 - red OR green
Card Crafter's Circle #31 - Christmas in July
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #147 - plan: (at least) 1 circle or oval element, (at least) 2 different papers, and (at least) 1 embellishment

Here's the sketch I used...

 ~Paper Studio dp's
~Perfect Paisley and Swiss Dots embossing folders
~Casa Collection ribbon
~K&Co sticker
~circle and scalloped punches
~sentiment stamp from ???

Thanks for stopping by!!

What a great sketch! I love the embossing on the patterned paper - I forget to do that, and it's such a great effect! - and yet another Christmas card ready. Good for you! I noticed a lot of those challenges too, shuddered, and went back to sweating :) It's just too hot to think about for long!

Wonderful card. Quite elegant looking, and I really like the colour scheme you've used. Well done! Thank you for entering this week's Christmas challenge at Card Crafter's Circle (p.s., last week we had summer vacation - LOL!)

So good to know that there are more people out there who are in Christmas mode. I think it's never been that "bad" in July ever - it must be because I'm wearing a fleece jacket and drinking hot tea. Anyhow, waht I actually wanted to say was: what a gorgeous card!!

Melissa Craig said...

Absolutely stunning! Love the rich papers. Great sketch, too.
