Merry Christmas - Aud Sentiment #184

Thursday July 13-24, 2017
It's time for another challenge at
the theme is CHRISTMAS IN JULY
it's time to get some Christmas cards made.. Here is a good start.
Our sponsor for this challenge is BUGABOO STAMPS
Well I am always up to getting Christmas card made before the deadline so this worked out perfect... I am using the fun image called Christmas girl sitter... I used a Tim Holtz stencil and did the brick background with Ranger inks. I then die cut the circle with My Favorite Things circle scallop die and colored the background inner circle with Ranger and spritzed with water. I adhered it to the card base and added the brick wall with foam tape over card front. I added the scallop frame inside. I was going to have it raised with the wall but it just didn't look right. I colored the Bugaboo Christmas girl and used foam tape and added her to the circle edge. I stamped and die cut the holly /berries from Paper Trey Ink and added them along with the Simon Says sentiment embossed in Platinum embossing powder. I added some half beads as holly berries.  I really like the fun look. Hope I have inspired you to play along.  Please check out the design team and see what they created for this challenge.
