My Craft Spot Challenge #104~Christmas in July

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi my crafty friends! I hope you had a great weekend! We managed to get some much needed yard work done along with taking in a FUN birthday party for a friend who turned 50. What a party!! 
Hope you all had a great weekend! 
Today, we have a great challenge going on at My Craft Spot and hope you come join in. The challenge is: 
"Christmas in July"
Fun ha? I can't believe Christmas is less than 6 mo away! Crazy...but this will help all of us....maybe jump start us some on our Christmas cards, gifts and other holiday projects, right? I know it was fun for me to dig out my Christmas things to create my card:) 
Here is a card that I made using My Craft Spot's Stampin' Around Christmas stamp set...hope you like it:)
I started with a 5 x 5 card base. The base layer is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. I cut the ornaments at 3" from the Christmas Cheer cartridge~An oldie but goodie! I inked the pieces a bit with Tim Holtz~Old Paper distressed ink. 
The papers are from My Minds Eye~Merry Little Christmas collection. I wanted a little extra for the ornaments so I grabbed My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies Metal Die set and the Stampin' Around Christmas stamp set.  
I stamped the sentiment and then popped these for some added dimension to the center of the ornament! 
I used a Pine Leaf punch for all the branches and the red skittles are from my friend Carri.  I just love adding them to my projects! I topped the card off with a pretty bow using My Craft Spot's spring moss crinkle ribbon. 
Please be sure to go check out what the amazing DT has created! Trust won't be disappointed!! We hope you come join in the challenge! We'd love to see what you create!
