Christmas in July - CTO #21

Time for a another challenge  with  Celebrate the Occasion .  This week we are celebrating "Christmas in July" and you cannot use the color red.  Well, here in Mn we are finally getting 80 degree weather so the thought of Christmas brings back images of the snow and the c o l d..... AGHHHHH!!!    Anyway, so here is what I came up with.    
   This card is 4.25 x 5.5 and is a fairly simple card, no cricut involved, but I loved how it turned out. The cardstock I used is from DCWV and American Crafts.   The stars were cut  using the Martha Stewart Anywhere punch. I then filled the small stars in with silver and gold Stickles  and for the larger stars I used a Viva Decor pen.  The sentiment is a rub-on from the "Tis the season" line from Kaiser Krafts and the ribbon I pulled from my stash.

  So head on over to CTO and check out what all the other designers have created,  you'll be amazed and inspired.   We would love to see what you create, so come join in on the fun!!

Happy Crafting!!

  8. Should we all start singing "Let it snow, let it snow..."? or should it be "twinkle, twinkle little star"? At any rate, the card is fantastic and I bet it just shimmers in person :)
