Christmas In July Quick and Simple

This month, Deb Neerman as a member of the Design Team for No Time to Stamp chose the theme of Christmas In July and it is to be quick and simple. A great chance to get a Christmas card made.

I chose the background paper from the Kaisercraft pack Utopia and used Stampin' Up Tempting Turquoise which matched beautifully. The image and wording are from JustRite Stampers and I have embossed them in gold and raised both sections on SU Dimensionals. The edgings are punched with the Iron Gate Punch from Martha Stewart and I finished off with silk ribbon and Kaisercraft pearls. Very quick and simple!!!

Off to hang some curtains now and then look out for another challenge to try! All FUN!

This is just a stunner of a card Jean - love everything about it, but that gorgeous big bow really sets it off! Seems like we're both doing challenges today - good fun eh!
