Christmas in July card!

Hi everyone! Well, every time I check the blogs I follow, I see more and more Christmas cards! So, I figured I should play along and get busy making some Christmas cards. I wanted to play along with several sites. First, there's a color challenge at the Ribbon Carousel site. Then, there's a "Christmas in July" challenge at the PaperPlay site. And, finally, there's a "no rules" challenge at the Simon Says Stamp and Show site. Here's my card and the challenge colors from the Ribbon Carousel site.
These colors were, clearly, a perfect Christmas card! I used my Hero Arts Christmas tree stamp and inked it in a mossy green and then cut it out. Then, I added some Christmas red stickles to fill in the ornaments and garland. I used pattern paper from My Mind's Eye "Merry Little Christmas" 6x6 paper stack and stamped a simple "Merry Christmas" sentiment and embossed it in white. I added some red and green twine at the top of the card and it was done! The tree took the most time but it looks cute... :)

I guess I got a headstart on Christmas this year!

Hope you call can join in on the fun, too!
