Delightful Challenges

Good Morning!  Yay!! We're on the downhill side of this week and that means a new challenge at Delightful Challenges.  It was really amazing to see all the entries for last week's special folds challenge.  Wow!  This week's challenge is a fun one, too.

Christmas in July

I had to laugh, I showed my son my card when I finished it and he said "that card is late."  LOL  I told him it wasn't late, it's early and we're half way to Christmas.  So, here's your opportunity to get a jumpstart on your holiday greetings and maybe win a prize, too.

This sweet image is called Stocking Noah.  I love the faces that Wendy gives her images, they are just so sweet and so loveable.  As you can tell, I pulled some oooold paper from Stampin' Up! and I think my Christmas card turned out really well.  I hope you think so, too.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar white, Real Red, Certainly Celery, Old Olive
Paper:  Christmas paper (SU!)
Copics:  100, E00, E02, R00, R11, R27, R29, Y15, Y17, YG17, YG67, YR23
Tools:  Cuttlebug, snowflakes emb folder, Labels One nesties
Embellishments:  White Puffy Paint (Tulip), button, metal sentiment tag, rhinestones, satin ribbon

The layout is from a great sketch over at Let's Capture these Sketches.
