Christmas In July (sorry- I was even humming Christmas songs)

I have to confess, the second I started making this card, I started humming a Christmas carol. I immediately realized that I had to stop at one card or I'd be playing Christmas songs on my play list. But, it did get me in the mood for Christmas. Here's my card....

I tried to meet Jay Gee's Nook Challenge by keeping the card crisp and clean like the photograph of the headboard. That is a beautiful headboard! I used Papertrey white Card stock and also the Papertrey Mehndi Medallion Stamp Set. It is embossed with opaque embossing powder.

Little Red Wagon just wanted a lovely Christmas card ... so easy to add the SU sentiment, embossed with Ranger silver embossing powder. I used the two punches to give it a nice layered look when I popped it up. Adding the bling just gives it a little sparkle for the holiday.

Over at The Craft's Meow they had a sketch to follow. I did my best to follow the sketch by using the medallion and then having the sentiment coming off to the side. I went pretty CAS with this card. 

These are the links to the three challenges, Great ideas at all three blogs. I enjoyed viewing the DT's cards. Stop by and take a look.
