Timeless Tuesday - Christmas in July...

Welcome to another Timeless Tuesday Challenge!  
Today's hostess, Mona, has challenged us to create a Christmas in July project.
*See Edit Below regarding challenge*

Flourishes Alleluia Angel, Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle Die, Kaiser Craft 'Bonjour' DP, Ribbon and Twine from Flourishes, Classic White Cardstock, Button from my stash, Want 2 Scrap Bling, Copic Markers, Dimensional Squares

This card needed to be very quick and easy, and only having two Christmas sets, I was able to make up my mind very quickly which stamps to use.  

The card was folded, and the Kaiser Craft Bonjour DP adhered to card front. 


Next, it was colored with Copic Markers:



 Next, I added some Gelly Roll Starburst Pen to the wings, stars, and a bit here and there for some sparkle.  

I embossed the focal image with the Spellbinder's Romantic Rectangle Die, and trimmed around the embossing mark to fit in the brown frame that I cut with the same die.

The finished panel was adhered using dimensional foam.  

A bit of Want2Scrap Bling, some May Arts Iridescent ribbon, Ivory Jute Twine, and a button were added.

Thank you for stopping by today!

I hope that you will take a moment to check out the creations of the amazing Timeless Tuesday ladies:

Allison     Amanda     Cindy     Denise     Heather     Makiko     Mona
Jan Marie

Edited:  Ooop!  Somehow, I didn't realize that the challenge had been changed.  Still hope to see your creation in the challenge this week, but the challenge is "Savor Summer".  Use your favorite summer stamps to create a recipe card!  The Design Team has some gorgeous projects for your inspiration!
Sorry for the confusion...

Hope to see your card in the Timeless Tuesday #178 Challenge, 'Savor Summer'!

Hugs,
Patti J.
