Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas ...........

in about 5 months.  But we're having Christmas in July.  I had a little trouble figuring out what I was going to make, but once I created this card, I came up with an idea for another card!

Here is my card:




This card is a mish mash of products.  I used a stamp that I was gifted.  It is somewhat like this set A Year of Flowers.  I used Stampin Up White Embossing Powder, the pine branch for the background and the from Ornamental Pine.  I watercolored the images with Zig Clean Brush Pens.  I wanted it to be more red, but with watercolor the red was diluted.  I like the way the color turned out though.

I've entered this card into the challenge at Cards in Envy.  I also entered it in the challenge at Christmasstampin

Thank you for stopping by and Merry Christmas (in July).  Tune in tomorrow for another Christmas project.
