Christmas in July

This week at Color My Heart they are asking us to use Emerald, Sea Glass and Raspberry with Black, White and Silver. I did not get any of the new colors unfortunately before I quit Close To My Heart. It was hard to find similar colors because they are unique. I found raspberry in the Flirty paper pack. I guess it is the same color. Absolutely beautiful. I love this color and hopefully I can order the ink soon. Instead of Emerald and Sea Glass, I ended up using Lagoon and Glacier. It's bluer than it should be, but still pretty. Not as Christmasy as I'd hoped though.

I am entering this into the Christmas in July challenge at Merry Monday. The sketch is from CAS(E) This Sketch, and I am also entering the "Oh the Places You'll Go" challenge at Heart 2 Heart. I interpreted this for a Christmas card as "I'm going home for Christmas." I actually don't know where I'll be for Christmas this year, and I did get to spend the last Christmas before my mom died with her for the first time since I'd been married. It was such a special time and a true gift.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Lagoon, Glacier, Flirty Raspberry, white Daisy
Stamps: Home for the Holidays
Ink: Lagoon
Other: Silver Shimmer Trim, Flirty Assortment, Seam Binding Ribbon, My Legacy Writer, Art Philosophy
