#TGIFC221 Inspiration Challenge - Christmas in July!

Hi friends!  Today at #TGIF Challenges we are having an Inspiration Challenge!  It's Christmas in July! 

How fun is that?  Do you love to make Christmas cards year round?  I always like to start designing early as most of my weekends from October on are filled with craft and vendor shows.  
I'm sad to admit that my selection of holiday stamps are extremely limited at the current moment.  That's not really an issue though as the First Frost Stamp Set made it into the new Annual Catalog!  So happy about that!  

It's difficult to see in the picture as I only very lightly embossed using the Seasonal Wreath 3D Embossing Folder.  I then created several stamped images (using Pretty Peacock, Old Olive, Mango Melody and Petal Pink Inks) from the First Frost Stamp Set and coordinating Frosted Bouquet Dies.  
After arranging them onto the right side of the wreath- I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock Ink and into the center of the wreath.

Using the Bermuda Bay Dark Stampin Blend- I added a bit of splatter.  The Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets may just be my favorite embellishment!  LOVE them!

Please join our challenge this week!  The deadline for entries is 10am PST on Thursday 7/25 and I would LOVE to see what you create for Christmas in July!
