Day 6 - Christmas in July - Catch the bug

Thursday July 20, 2017
 
 Day 6 of Christmas in July at Catch the bug
 
It's Oldie but Goodie for us.. but you just need to follow the photo below to give you inspiration for your card..
 
 
These colors are right up my mom's alley.. She loved to use the fun pastels. I miss her so much. Christmas was a special time of the year for her. She would have a couple Christmas trees all set up beautifully and the house decorated. It was a special time..
 
Well on to my card.. I am using Bug Elf..  You can find in the Bugaboo store. I used a lot of the colors in the photo and added the strip behind the image that have some of those colors. the card stock is a shiny silver but it's hard to tell. I used copics, glitter and Nuvo drops and Spectrum Noir glitter pen. The stitch die is My Favorite Things.
