Crafty Gals July's Challenge

Hello everyone!!!. Here I am with another challenge, this time is from my blog group the Crafty Gals. You can visit them on the right side of my blog. This month Patty challenged us to make a project about Christmas in July, and since Clean and Simple cards are her favourites, she challenged us with a Clean and simple card. Well... I have to admit, they are not my favourites. I can't make them. I started this challenge three times without luck. I LOVE busy cards with lots of layers and embellishments. I tried my best and here is my card. I'm also playing at the 52 Christmas Throwdown and The Paper Players challenge #102.

For this card I used:

Cardstock: Vanilla from Recollections, Old Olive and Cherry Cobler from  SU
Design paper: Holiday Style from October Afternoon
Accessories: Poinsettia Spellbinder, pearl and Spiral punch from SU and Branch punch from Martha Stewart.

Thanks for looking!!!

I didn't know Spellbinders made a poinsettia die, it's to die for lol!! I think that paper is stunning, the whole card is. You know, you could put this on one of those little easels and set it out during the holidays as part of your Christmas decor. You really created something special here.
