It is the biggest TGIF around here! It has been an exhausting week with the heat and birthday party planning. I can easily say I’ve bitten off more than I should have with this party. I hope it all turns out and that my to do list starts to shrink!
Today’s Catch the Bug Christmas in July challenge is a recipe challenge. It is also Freebie Friday day. I didn’t use the freebie from today (I’d never get it done!), but I’ll be grabbing it from the store.
The recipe calls for ribbon/bow, at least 3 layers, using glitter or bling and the color cream.
I definitely have all of those things on this card! I pulled out one of the fun word art images and printed it on Very Vanilla. I like how the green and red are a bit muted on the image. The background designer paper is from Best Creations — the holly are glittered. I also added red rhinestones to the ornaments. More of that gorgeous gold-trimmed green ribbon worked very nicely with this card.
