FTTC74 – Christmas in July



Happy Tuesday everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC74) !  This week’s challenge host is me and  I am getting you all in gear with a theme challenge.  We are celebrating Christmas in July!  No explanation necessary for this theme.  Just have fun and make something festive! While Flourishes stamps are not required, if you have them, by all means use them!   We would love to see what you create.

I may also mention to you all that ......Stacy hosts a Flourishes Christmas Spirit Challenge at SCS monthly. If you would like to combine this challenge with that one to draw some attention to both that would be great. Here is the link. This month is about Christmas song lyrics or song titles. Use that keyword code (FLLCNOEL3) when loading to SCS and link back to the SCS thread. This is not required..... just a suggestion if you want to combine it. 



My card for today was used Winter Bouquet set for the entire image and sentiment. I colored the bouquet image with Copic markers on the classic white mat, that was cut out with label 3 Nestabilities. I used Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses for the designer paper in the middle. I stamped the berry image on the moss green layer to create the borders.  I attached the pearls after I stamped the sentiment on the light pink mat. Then, the light pink satin ribbon was attached to complete the card.




Be sure to check out other FOF’s Christmas in July creations!
