MDU #18- Christams in July


I must say I am loving all the Christmas in July card's that are around at the moment. So am happy to have been able to complete this challenge. I don't actually have any chrissy Magnolia's, so made do by colouring in with christmas colours.

The main colours I used were real red, choc chip and old olive. Choc chip and real red ribbon. I used for the first time my holly embossing folder. It took me a while to think about what to put on this card, but I'm happy with the finished card. Thanks for looking.

The holly embossing folder is stunning, and looks fantastic in red and you have coloured Tilda in so well to suit a Christmas card. Love it.
