Happy Holidays Card

Wow!  Another post today!  I must be making up for lost time....  Hee hee....  I had to make another card today because.... When I got home from Vegas, I found a lot of challenges I wanted to enter!  I just can't help myself!  :)  There are a lot of challenges going on now (and coming up) that have a "Christmas in July" theme, so that is why I made this holiday card in the middle of the summer!  It was fun to make.... Christmas is my favorite time of year, so this brings up good feelings.  Okay, here we go!

The Paper Variety-  Christmas in July
Celebrate the Occasion-  Christmas card using NO red (that was tough, I can just picture a red scarf blowing in the wind....)
My Creative Time-  Throwback Thursday, use Wild Card & incorporate embossing




Wild Card-  card cut at 4.69"
Christmas Cheer- snowman cut at 3.24"
Cuttlebug- polka dots, snowflakes
Peachy Keen Stamps-  Winter Face Assortment
Sentiment- Stampabilities
Martha Stewart glitter- crystal, sterling

Enjoy! :)
