Christmas In July Bloghop

Welcome to the 52 {Christmas} Card Christmas in July Blog Hop!  If you've arrived here from Gill, of Lily-By-Gilly you are on the right track!  If you haven't and want to participate for a chance to win honors and/or prizes, please go back to the original hop post and follow along with us!  Come and take a peek at the creation I made using our prompts for the month!
There are four prompts and I have chosen the sketch......




    ....as mine. Here is my card for July



I found a pack of Christmas 12x12 papers in the bargain bucket at my local craft shop and couldn't resist, love this polka dot paper and I now have it in several colours. Today I chose traditional Christmas colours. The tree and sentiment images are from an old retired SU set, I think it is called Season Of Joy, embossed in white and I reversed the mat layers. Finally I added three colour matching buttons. Quite CAS and a traditional/contempo mashup of a card. Hope you like it!

Thank you for coming by to leave a comment!  Don't forget--hop along with us starting at the original 52CCT post for multiple chances to win honors and prizes!  Your next stop will bePatricia of ThinkingofInking Merry hopping!
