TCP Challenge TCPTUES67 / Christmas in July!

This week TCP Tuesday Challenge is hosted by Carole, who has a sketch for us to play with. Lots of FUN circles on this sketch!

I was trying to figure out what TCP image to use, when I came across this wreath with cute robins on it from the Elegant Christmas set. The circular shape of the image just called for me to use it; so I thought it was just perfect for a Christmas in July card! After all, it can never be too soon to get started!

I really like the elegant look of this set. I ended up using mostly scraps leftover from last year's Christmas cards. I used some H20 pearlescent watercolor around the wreath to match the shimmer on the pearlescent gold paper and glitter on the green strip of paper. The additional circles were a perfect spot to add the snowflakes and the sentiment:). I also added some red stickles on the wreath and just had fun with this card!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Elegant card, Carol. I like the way you colored the wreath. Great take on the challenge! I have some ancient snowflake punches, and I never think to use them. Thanks for the reminder!
