It's Christmas... in JULY!

Hi all! Hope you've had a great week. Boy, I have no idea where it went but -- while we soak in these fun summer days, Flourishes is trying to get everyone in the Christmas spirit -- with a Christmas in July Sale! For the next 24 hours, all Christmas sets are a whopping 20% off! What fun, right? Just click HERE to check it all out!

So, to get you in the spirit, I'm showing off a card I made with the Sweets of the Season set. I have to admit, every one of the images in this set brings a smile to my face!

When I picked up this set, I decided I wanted to use the little gingerbread people in this set to create a kind of garland draped over my card front. So... I stamped, colored with Copics (E31, E33, R27, R39, R35, RV00, RV02, YG13, YG03, YG00), cut out my couple and then strung baker's twine through holes I punched in their hands. The rest is just matting it up!

Here's a close up of my little couple, you can see I did add some sparkle thanks to some glitter glue. I also added some accents to their little eyes with an Inkssentials White gel pen.
And that, my friends is it! Be sure to stop on over to Stacy Morgan's blog today! She also is dishing up some Christmas delights!

Thanks for stopping by! See y'all back here soon!
