An Elegant HO HO

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.
