Our challenge is "Christmas in July"  Just add your card to the gallery using the linky tool below.  To be eligible for the prize, we ask that you create a new card (no back linking, please) and enter your card in no more than 3 challenges.  

Here is my sample to help inspire you:


To make it appear as if I matted all the layers, I used a silver paint pen along the edges- cool trick.  I finished off the card by adding some rhinestones for the ornaments.

Now, if you are like me and you don't quite know what to write inside a card or if you just like to have the inside of your card look finished, you are going to love the Christmas Innies!  Here is a look at the inside of my card:
