Christmas In July Day 2!

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
Happy Thursday!!
With keeping the Christmas In July theme I continued to make a Christmas card 
for the Catch The Bug Challenges.

It is a Sketch Challenge!

Here is my take on the sketch!
The Designer Paper is from the "Evergreen Stack" from DCWV.
I colored the super cute Bobblehead Christmas - Gingerbread from Bugaboo Stamps with my Spectrum Noir Markers.The Christmas Holly Berry die cuts borders are from Paper Trails.
I used the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies from My Creative Time and the Floral Doily Motifs die from Spellbinders. For some sparkle, I used glitter glue on the cute image and holly berry border.  

Next, I adhered a pretty red bow with a sparkly enamel dot on the center and stamped the "Happy holidays" sentiment from "It's a Magical Season" from My Creative Time.

Other Supplies Used:
Recollections Basic card stock
Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue
Elmer's Craft Bond Tacky Glue
Foam Tape
