Christmas In July

challenge at Merry Monday this month is to use any past sketch to create your Christmas card.  I decided to go with one of the earlier sketches that I had yet to create. I chose the sketch from Challenge #5-

I went for a cool monochromatic look with a Grey Flannel and White Daisy.  I felt the finished project needed a little bling, so I added bitty sparkles to my pattern paper and a little Spica pen glitter to my saying and skater’s outfit.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

C1456 Winter Joy

D1283 Say It In Style
