Christmas in April

Hello everyone,

I know, I know it's too early for Christmas if you're a normal person. Cardmakers however, are already thinking Christmas because the cards don't make themselves you know. I actually had packed up my Christmas stuff because I'm not really ready to think Christmas. This week's ABC Christmas Challenge is holly which is my all time favourite Christmas image - I couldn't resist. I also loved today's Clean & Simple sketch challenge so I decided to combine the two into a Christmas card.

The card base is Recollections. The green and white layers are Stampin' Up Green Galore and Whisper White. The Whisper White is textured with Sizzix Holly & Berries. The red printed paper is atd Under The Tree. The image is Hero Arts Winter which is highlighted with Xmas Red Stickles. The sentiment is Impression Obsession Christmas Sentiments.

I love this card! Maybe I'm missing Christmas cards more than I thought or it is the combination of holly and the sketch but I think this is a great card.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
