The Corrosive Challenge #204 - Christmas in July

Hi there!  It's been a busy week around here with a couple of fun vacation days with the small man.  I'm afraid I've been a bit neglectful of my crafting duties this Summer but I'm here to share my design team card for the new Corrosive Challenge today.  Our sponsor is one of my faves: A Day For Daisies!  And though the holidays may seem a ways off now, they'll be here before you know it so why not get a head start on your card making with our "Christmas in July" theme?!?!

A Day For Daisies owner, Tammy, is generously offering a $12 voucher to her store for our winner!  She also allowed each of us to select an image to work with.  I chose Wild Star Nymph.  She is colored with Copics and I printed her a second time so I could fussy cut her wings for an "outside the box" effect.  They are covered with a liberal amount of Star Dust Stickles.  My layout is courtesy of Sketch Saturday (#319).  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found Christmas Special Edition.  I used my Classic Circles and Lacey Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders) to cut and mat the image.  The star was created using the Stars Five Nestabilities (also Spellbinders).  I added a Tim Holtz holiday muse token and a few flowers from my stash as finishing touches.

It was fun to make a holiday card this time of year and I hope you'll join us for this challenge!  However, I am enjoying Summer and am in no rush to see Winter weather any time soon!  We just enjoyed a perfect beach day last week and I'm thinking I'd like a few more before I think of building snowmen instead of sand castles!  

I will be back later this week with another card or two so stay tuned!  Thanks for dropping in and hope you have a fabulous day! 

Markers used: Copics (E00, E04, E11, E1, E23, E31, E79, R20, R37, R39, R89, Y32, Y35, YG91, YG93, YG95, BG10, BG72).
