Christmas in July

I always like to get a start on my Christmas cards in July so here is my first shot.  I used Mary Jo’s Monday Lunch Time Sketch (TSSC77).  This is my newest Christmas set, new to the catalog, called Sparkly and Bright.  It is such a fun whimsical little set.  I also used the new Soft Suede In Color for the first time.  I was not too thrilled with the color when I saw it in the set of In Colors, but once I separated it from the rest of the colors I saw its true potential.  I think that I am really going to like this brown color. 


Rudolph’s nose was colored with a real red marker and cover in crystal effects so that it is bright and shiny.  I stamped the snowflake image on the patterns dsp to add to the Christmas-y feel.
