Warmest winter wishes - The Merry Christmas challenge #25

Wednesday June 20, 2018
 
Hello and hope you're having a great June and enjoying your June weather.  Are you getting ready for a vacation or on one? I hope you have time to craft..
The theme is ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES + CHRISTMAS
starting July 15th we will be going to a monthly challenge. The 15th of each month. It's still ATG  Christmas
 


I was going through my rack of dies and saw this fire place die from Taylored Expressions.. I had to use it.. So I used some Quick Quote scraps and die cut the pieces out.. I used some Ranger ink to distress the edges. I loved this piece when it was put together.. Then I looked at more scraps an used the dotted dp for the flooring. I used this Simon Says dp I got a long time ago and used it for the wall paper look. (I used this earlier paper June 6th)..  I then stamped the Paper Trey ink sentiment and added the wreath from Little B. I stamped the Mama Elephant images and colored with Zig water color brushes and added them to the card. I used a little stickles on the fire.  I hope I have inspired you to make a Christmas card and join in the challenge.

Hi, Billie!
How super FUN to see Christmas and Wintery cards this time of year. It's been up over 100 every day lately here in Las Vegas, so I appreciate the thoughts of a cooler time of year. Thanks so much for sharing in our challenges.
