Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is having a Christmas in July challenge this week.
As I am trying to get an early start on my Christmas cards, for a change, this year, their challenge was the perfect kick start for me.

I used the wonderful vintage style digi from Robyn's Fetish called "Sarah's Christmas" 
and went with a blue theme.

Other supplies used :
Watercolour crayons (Lyra)
Water brush
Deckled rectangles (Nestabilities)
Embossing folder (Cuttlebug)
Distresser and Ink blending tool (Tim Holtz)
Tumbled glass and Broken China distress inkpads (Tim Holtz)
White, light blue and dark blue cardstock
White dotted ribbon (Kaszazz)
Silver embossing powder (Kaszazz)
Top boss embossing stamp pad (Kaszazz)
Small tree stamp (Kaszazz)

This was a fun challenge to enter and I am looking forward to joining more challenges in the future now that I have my craft room set up a little better.

Until next time, happy crafting
smiles Wendy

lovely card, and it has been so hot and humid here lately that it is nice to think of snow. Won't think that come winter though. (LOL)
Anyway...great job.
