Jingle Belles & Shopping Our Stash Crossover

Jingle Belles and Shopping Our Stash have teamed up for a Christmas In July Challenge. To play along, you need to make a Christmas card using stash that is at least one year old. Here is my card:

All of the stash is at least a couple of years old, some more like 4 or 5 - papers, stamps and embellishments. The design is based on a sketch that Donna was using last week from Freshly Made Sketches. This is such a fabulous sketch and I have had so much fun playing with it. I am especially thrilled when I find a fun way to turn the fabulous scenes sometimes found in paper packs into the focal point of a card. This one is from Kaiser Craft's "Turtle Dove" line. I kept it simple in order to keep the focus on the scene.

Here is another shot with the matching envelope I made.

I'll be back soon. I took advantage of the rain and stormy weather here to spend some time in my craftspace!

What I used:
paper: Kaiser Craft "Turtle Dove"
sentiment: CTMH D1388 Card Chatter - Christmas (retired)
CTMH Durables Artisan Studs
