Christmas in July

I hope everyone had a fun and safe fourth of July!  I had a pleasant day and enjoyed a cookout with my family and then watched fireworks in our neighborhood.  Now I'm ready to call it a night but wanted to post this card while I had a chance.  Tomorrow is lining up already to be a busy day.

The Paper Players have a cool challenge this week ... Christmas in July.  I bought a new Christmas set but didn't want to "show it" yet.  So, I used a set that just retired.  Ok, I really like how this card turned out and may just use this as one of my designs this year. 

Stamps:  Christmas Classic (retired)
Paper:  Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
DSP:  Jolly Holiday (retired)
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler
Accessories:  Cherry Cobbler baker's twine, Old Olive ribbon and brads, polka dot embossing folder, Cuttlebug tag die, Stickles
All products are SU unless otherwise noted.

Please excuse the bad pictures lately.  Some setting on my camera has changed and I don't know what it is yet.  Taking this picture at night didn't help matters either.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Pam, loved the fact that you stamped the ornaments at different heights, and the Baker's Twine is just perfect to hang them from. I wonder what Christmas set you ordered (wink)! I bet you are going to do wonderful things with it:-)
I love how you used the brads and the ribbon with the tag, too.
Really fabulous card.
So glad you joined the Paper Players again this week
