Christmas and Summer

 The color inspiration from Off The Wall Craftiness, LOVE these colors together!
 Now I totally did not follow the theme of the pictures but I instead pulled out the colors.  I used some scraps of my Fancy Pants Roadshow papers along with some PTI Kraft, stamps and  buttons to create one of my favorite Christmas Cards.



The sketch this week from Paper Sundaes:

For my card I incorporated The Shabby Tea Room challenge and the Fab 'N' Funky challenge - summer
The paper and tag are from My Mind's Eye (Breaking Free) and the buttons are PTI.
