MMSC11 - Christmas In July


It's week #11 of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge! I was wanting to do something in RED. I haven't used RED in a while and what works well with RED....CHRISTMAS! This is one of my new digi's I released last week. A little early for the Christmas season, but I'm hoping to get a head start on it this year. I'm closer! I have one card done! LOL!

I learned a little tip too! See the flowers. See how they are RED? They were yellow. I colored them RED with my Copic Markers! Too COOL!

I really love the look of this Christmas card Sue. It reminds me of a the tapestry wall hangings I so love during Christmas. Great little details throughout too! :)
