Christmas in July- Bloggers Challenge

 Bloggers Challenge this week is Christmas in July- Yeah- I have a card made to play along!

 This is a card I made with some of the Poinsettia's created for last Tuesday's challenge at Sweet Stamps- colors and supplies listed in THIS post.
 I won this gorgeous ribbon- I added some metal rhinestones to the ribbon after tying a bow.
 The background is from the Technique Junkies and is called Acrylic Block Taping. The poinsettia's were added in another technique called Cascading Image from the Technique Junkies.
  Bloggers Challenge 'MOM' Lisa can be found HERE. We play weekly- when we can- and it is just for fun.
 Off to get ready for a party we are having tonight........

Thanks for stopping by!

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
A card so beautifully you are making me consider knuckling down and creating some Christmas projects.
Whoever receives your card come Christmas is exceptionally lucky.

Love those poinsettia's and they look right at home on that fabulous background! Very pretty Christmas card! When we live in San Diego, we had a poinsettia that grew like a wild bush! Enjoy!
