Christmas in July???

Hello and Happy Thursday everyone! I'm hoping your
week is turning out grand! Mine is slow going but I'm sure
it'll pick up soon! :o) I've been planning on something for
Monday! I can't tell ya what yet... cause it's not Monday! LOL
I've been planning on this idea for awhile now and I'm finally
taking the plunge.... That's all I'm gonna say about it! :o)
But I will talk about today's card that I made! :o)
I actually designed this card about 2 weeks ago and
haven't cut it out til last night for a Challenge!
Anyway here is the card that I made! :o)

Card stock - Taken with Teal (Stampin' Up)
Ink - Creamy Carmel, Pretty N Pink, Regal Rose, Bashful blue (SU)
Stamp - Christmas Wishes (My Pink Stamper)
Designer Paper - Enjoy the Seasons Imagine Art Cartridge
Cartridges - George & Basic Shapes (Rectangle) Cut @ 5.8
Flood Filled with the designer paper on pg. 40
Lacey Labels (Pink Shapes) Cut @ 3.8 The (Dark Pink)
was flood filled with a color that was on the Imagine and
the (Light Pink) was flood filled with designer paper on pg. 39
The (Tree) was Cut @ 3.5 and I used the separate button
to just cut the tree out (2x's)
The (Dog/Cat) was Cut @ 3 and I used the separate button
to just cut the couch & dog/cat (2x's)
The (Banner) was Cut @ 3.3 and I used the separate button
to just cut the banner (2x's)
So all the pieces came from different images to make the
card that you see! :o)

Here is a side view to show the added dimension
from the tree, couch, dog/cat, & banner.... I thought this
turned out pretty cute! (1) Christmas card down
and a whole bunch more to go! :o)
So this card is going into the challenges over at:
 Celebrate the Occasion - Christmas project (NO RED)
The Paper Variety - Christmas Project
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a
fabulous weekend! Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

This is FANTASTIC! I love the images - and thought they were stamps until I read that you'd cut them! The backs of the little animals are such an adorable touch.
