Christmas Wishes in July

No, I am not counting the days until Christmas, it comes all too quickly as it is. I don't know why, but it just seems to sneak up on me every year even though I know it's coming.

Today's card is another "2fer". This is for Blogger's Challenge which is supposed to be a Christmas in July project and it's also my entry in Kristina's (KWernerDesign) color inspiration challenge. This week the colors are Regal Rose, Rose Red, Sage Shadow and Whisper White. Love this color combo.

I used the set "Believe" from Papertrey Ink for the main images. I stamped the PP from Basic Grey with the flourish from SU Carte Postale in Versamark and then embossed it with white embossing powder.

Don't forget to check out the creations of the rest of the Bloggers Challenge participants!

TGIF.
