Christmas in July

Hi Ya!  A card for the current Paper Players challenge to make a Christmas card.  And you know, it is never too early to start making those Christmas cards.  I combined the Paper Players challenge with the current Taylored Expressions sketch (TESC141) and used the Taylored Expression set Christmas Blessings for the card.  The patterned papers are from the BasicGrey Jovial 6x6 pad.   Cardstock is PTI Vintage Cream and Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler.   No sentiment on the card because I put the three buttons where I think I would have put the sentiment... but I think the image says it all. 



Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream, SU! Cherry Cobbler; PP:  BasicGrey Jovial; Ink:  Ranger Forest Moss and Old Paper Distress Inks; Buttons:  PTI; Twine:  May Arts
