Christmas in July - OWH Mid-week challenge

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Every week Operation Write Home Stars and Stripes has a mid-week 'throw down.' This weeks challenge was Christmas in July.

In addition to using the Christmas theme, I also used Sketch # 1 for the layout.

The finished size is A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4). This was my first use of the Sew Easy tool that I purchased on my trip to Chicago and I have to say that I like the stitching. For this card since I wanted to the hint of blue to pull in the snowflake, I used a continuous stitch instead of a normal stitch pattern.

The snowflake is from the Creative Memories cartridge Cheerful Seasons. It is cut at 2 1/2 inches. All paper is generic card stock, except for the silver background for the snowflake. The paper is from an assorted paper pack that I purchased from Big Lots.

I used dimension stickies to raise up the snowflake for some added dimension.

I hope everyone has a safe and restful weekend, until next time.
