Christmas in July!

The base of the card is CTMH Outdoor Denim B&T paper. Using a plaid enterprises embossing stencil of a Christmas Ornament on glossy cardstock was the first embossing element for this card.  Coloring the ornament with CTMH cranberry, olive, and
outdoor denim stamp pads and the top of the ornament with silver embossing powder and  a Personal Stamp Exchange  embossing stamp pad. The ribbon is CTMH sheer dutch blue with a CTMH button in the center.  The ornament was mounted on glossy cardstock embossed with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder.  This was then mounted on Outdoor Denim cs.  Outlining the glossy swirls is mini gem lines from Glitterazzi embellishments. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado mounted on the glossy cardstock mounted on the outdoor denim cs.  This card is being entered in the following challenges:

           The Cuttlebug Spot - Christmas in July with embossing
           Annabelle Stamps  - Say it with embossing
           Anyone for Anya      - Be dazzled
           Cooking it up with Katie - Buttons, Bows, and Blue
