Christmas In July



The challenge at Merry Monday this month is to use any past sketch to create your Christmas card.  I decided to go with one of the earlier sketches that I had yet to create. I chose the sketch from Challenge #5-


I went for a cool monochromatic look with a Grey Flannel and White Daisy.  I felt the finished project needed a little bling, so I added bitty sparkles to my pattern paper and a little Spica pen glitter to my saying and skater's outfit.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
C1456 Winter Joy
D1283 Say It In Style
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
X5921 Grey Flannel Cardstock
Winter Park Paper by EP
Z2124 Grey Flannel Ink
Spica Glitter Pen
Z1263 Bitty Sparkles
Z1732 Seam Binding Ribbon
Circle Stax Dies by MFT

I have also entered this card in the Christmas in July Challenge at The Paper Players.
And the monochromatic challenge at The Weekly Christmas Card Challenge.


Thanks for stopping by!
