It's Christmas in July today... well at least for this card anyways.. It's always fun to have a nice stack of Christmas cards ahead of time before the holidays come and not be stressed out to make a ton all at the last minute, esp when it's holiday time..
So this is the card I made today:
I mounted my sentiments on a Christmas tree and added a couple of silver ball blings:

I combined a couple of challenges, the sketch challenge from Merry Mondays to use a previous sketch, I choose to use #4:

Next I played along with the Jingle Belles challenge:" we call it red OR green and the "OR" is capitalized on purpose, because june's got a fun little twist for us: the assignment is to create a holiday card that incorporates either red OR green... but not BOTH!!!"
Can I tell ya... it's kind of a hard one... So I choose RED...

And lastly, the Crafty Steals blog had Christmas card challenge also:   
Make a Christmas card or layout using patterned paper
that is NOT from a Christmas line.

For my card I used some older Pink Paislee paper (actually from the 4th of July line) and some non Christmas Jillibean Soup paper too..
