FTTC128–Christmas In July! challenge


Hello and happy Tuesday everyone~

It’s time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC128). It my turn to host and I’m challenging you to create a Christmas/holiday card. In addition with visiting Flourishes blog for more information about the challenge, be sure to check out Flourishes Store for Christmas in July Sale! I hope you get yourself into the festive mood and play along with us!

 

 

For my card, I used one of the image and sentiment from Christmas Classics. The image was stamped with Memento tuxedo black on the Lacey Circles mat and colored with Copic markers - Poppy, Dusty Rose and Flesh Tones 2. The sentiment was stamped on the Fancy Tags 3 mat. I added the crocheted trim and embellished the card with roses and flourish pearls.
