Still...Christmastime in July!

Two weeks ago, Queen Whiplash released her newest Christmas images and I am IN LOVE with all of them - how in love? I bought them all!  :D  HA!

Here's the link to my first card: HERE! You can also see a few other creations using these fantastic images HERE!

I colored this image Friday night and applied glossy accents to ALL those beautiful pink decorations on the wreath - whew, my hand was tired of squeezing the bottle...and I was even able to WALK AWAY and let it dry (seldom do I have the patience...or the time)!




I decided to mount the image on the inside of the card on some Hibiscus card stock and use a nestie for the front layer of the card, then I also embossed it with a Cuttlebug tiny dots folder.

I wanted to keep it pretty CAS, nothing too fancy. I used 3 colors of pink floss to continue the color theme. 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Ladybug Crafts Ink to see all the A-MAZING new images!

Hugs,
