Christmas in July ---- 3 in one


I was on vacation last week so I had a lot of challenge sketches to go thru yesterday when I got home and I really liked this one I found at "Nacho Average Challenges"   I don't know that I've ever used a triangle on a card before plus I rarely think to add ribbon to a card but here it is.    I'm also in a Christmas in July card challenge on a yahoo group and one of the prompts was to use ribbon so this sketch worked fantastic for this prompt too.     Here is the sketch I used below and check out all the details of the challenge  HERE.

Also this week at "Craft Your Passions Challenges" challenge #223 is Christmas in July so I will b entering this card there also.    Read all about this challenge   HERE.    Kind of double duty, my passion is scrapping and tied for my biggest passion is Christmas.

I get to enter this card in one more challenge.    "Pause Dream Enjoy" challenge #15 is to use 3 or more patterned papers.    I tried to coordinate my papers with holly on everything and I found 3 different patterns to use.   The back ground paper which was all greens with  little gold, then my triangle with beiges and the green and red of holly and then red background paper with green holly leaf that I matted my sentiment in.    Check out the challenge  HERE.
