Christmas in July

I just found a new challenge site and since they didn't have many players thought I'd like to submit a card.  I was in the "need" to stamp anyway!!  :)  I combined 2 old sets that I absolutely loved with some of the current.  Stamps: the Sounding Joy, First Christmas
                                  Cardstock;  Midnight Muse, whisper white
                                  Ink, Midnight Muse stamp &marker, Illuminate glimmer st.pad                 
                                  Accessories;  Mosiac punch and embossing folder,  pearls
It is hard to see the Illuminate stamping on the midnight muse, used the big star with the words to the song Joy to the world.   The  "Christmas love" was gotten from the stamp used on the inside of the card- picked the words I wanted and used a marker to color and stamped one word at a time.  Thanks for looking and on this HOT day in July think of December and snow maybe you'll feel cooler :)
 Wanted to show the inside of the card. I embossed the front knowing fully that it wouldn't be seen much on the front, but oh my does it ever make the inside of the card POP out at you!!  why have boring when you can have   ohh,la,la.
Here is the sketch challenge;


  1. Wow, Vicki, this is so very pretty. I especially love the way the embossing shows on the inside of your card. Thanks for joining us at Sunny Challenges and Creations.

  2. Ohhlala Vicki! I love your embossing, not to mention that gorgeous inside embossing - what a clever idea. Thanks for playing along with us at Sunny Challenges & Creations
