Christmas in July


4 challenges inspired today's card...

Jingle Belles // #JB2414 ...A year round Christmas challenge with a theme!!  The theme for this challenge is embossing!!  We could use any type of embossing...heat embossing or dry embossing.  I used pre-embossed designer paper.  This paper was no ago retired from Stampin Up but feel like it fit the challenge perfectly.  The embossed sheet music on kraft makes for the perfect background for my wooden snowflakes.

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS643 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was perfect for my trio of snowflakes!  

ABC Christmas Challenge // 12JUN24 ...An alphabet Christmas challenge!!  M is for music!!  Sheet music seemed like a good choice for this challenge.

Retro Rubber Challenges // #rrcb234 ...A retro challenge with a theme.  Retro meaning that the stamps used need to be over a year old.  My "seasons greetings" sentiment is from Stampin Up's Beautiful Blizzard stamp set that came out in 2018.  I am also using some very retro embossed designer paper.  Not sure when this paper came out but it has been in my stash for over 5 years.  The theme for this current challenge is "Christmas in July", which pairs up perfectly with these 2 other Christmas challenges.  Season's Greetings!!
