Christmas In July at Dies R Us

Yes, you read the title right....
It's Christmas in July at the Dies R Us challenge blog.
Now stop complaining and sighing....LOL
just think, you will be one Christmas card ahead just by joining 
in our challenge!



I used a favorite embossing folder (I think I say that a lot..lol)
but really, look how beautiful this folder is,
for my background.

The holly is Cheery Lynn Designs Holly Lace Flourish.
I added a few red pearls to it for the berries.


The cardinal is a newly purchased 
Cheery Lynn Designs Feathered Friends die.
it has 4 different birds in this set
and I love the size of them.
I rarely read the sizes of the dies I purchase,
so I am usually pleasantly surprised when they arrive!

To finish this simple card, I just added a bow
and a stamped image from SU Perfect Presentation stamp set.

This card was so fast, easy and simple to do,
I might make this my "in a pinch, need a card in a hurry" Christmas card!
