Christmas in July

It's time to play in some Christmas card challenges. I didn't make any
last week while I was away but I think I made up for it yesterday. I made 4!

I used the colors from the inspiration photo at Christmas Card Challenges 

combined with the Merry Monday challenge to use buttons and ribbon. 
(I used baker's twine - hope that counts as ribbon)

I am also entering this in the following challenges

all from stampin' up unless noted
card stock: whisper white, cherry cobbler
dsp: be of good cheer (retired)
stamp set: jolly & joyful sentiments (lil' inkers)
ink: memento black
big shot: joy word die (lil' inkers)
embellishments: cherry cobbler baker's twine, 
    brights designer buttons (retired)

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
