Christmas in July

I was refraining from doing a Christmas in July card because I am in the Summer/Flower mode but when the Penny Black had a challenge, I had to do one! I created this card for 4 challenges

Penny Black Challenge #111-Christmas in July
Play Date Cafe #39-black, white, brown and grey
Basic Grey #25-Stitching
Truly Scrumpt1ous Challenge #37

This Penny Black image was colored with Copic markers. The saying is Verve that is embossed with Pewter embossing powder. The papers are Basic Grey-Granola and I used a Hero Arts stitch stamp around them. I ran the white strip through the snowflake Cuttlebug folder. I added brads and black pearls. I am getting ready to go out in the heat and mow. I will dream that it is Christmas and snowing while I mow! Thanks for stopping by!
