Christmas in July

Hello! Summer is just about half over.( ack! how did that happen???!!)... soon the stores will be advertising their back to school sales,but right now I'm thinking more about Christmas. My fav companies have started with their Christmas lines and so many blog challenges are Christmas in July, so I just had to make a card!

I had this vintage image that I got off the web ages ago that I really wanted to use.


I useda mulberry poinsetta  and some crochet ribbon to complement the vinatge image, which I spritzed with Glimmer Mist in Walnut Gold and then I accented the berries with a little red Stickles and Liquid Pearls. The green cardstock was ran through my Bigshot  (  I used a folder from Stampin' Up!) and I loved how some of the flowers looked distressed with just a wee bit of the white core peeking through.

While there are so  many Christmas themed challenges this week, I'm entering mine at :
