Christmas In July!!!

Good day to all my bloggie  friends!
 Today, I have for you my 1st Christmas card of this year!!!
For the base of my card I used this week's sketch challenge over at DCD. 
I used "The Evergreen Stack" by DCWV for the stripes & dots pattern paper and the postage stamp card base by SVG Cutting Files. The adorable "Holly The Elf" cutting file is from KBD. 
I used Bazzill Dainty Dots Bright cardstock for her outfit and PKS "In The Garden" on her adorable face. I added white pearls and poinsettia stickers, which I received from my bloggie friend, Anita. Thanks AnitaFor the Christmas sentiment, I stamped "Santa's little helper" from the All Around Christmas stamp set on a stitched circle, both from My Creative Time and I placed one of the poinsettia stickers on the center.
