July Sheetload Challenge

Have you seen the Sheetload monthly zine? It's a very cool place for you to check out. This month's challenge has prizes! Head on over to this link and check out their free magazine and submit a card! It's Christmas in July! Time to get a jump on cardmaking and get it out of the way. By the way, I'm not a do Christmas ahead of time person at all! I get annoyed, honestly about getting ready for Christmas until after Halloween. It just feels like so much pressure. With the state of the economy these days, though, I think I may have to start early! So, here's a card to get us all in the spirit!

I used the following:

stamps: PTI TAke a Bough
paper: Basic Grey Figgy, Cool Carribean, Rose Red. Whisper White
ink: Rose REd, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
accessories: Marvy scallop punches, ribbon, glue dots
To make the card, I cut out papers according to dimensions given for challenge, made the ornament with this cool set from PaperTrey. Stamped the sentiment on the blue sheet using a gridded acrylic block, sponged and assembled. The ribbon is held down with glue dots and the ornament layer is popped up.
Thanks for looking! Hope you like!
