I Couldn't Stop Myself.

I just really enjoy "Christmas in July"!! It's such a great way to get a step ahead of the Christmas rush.
Two things intrigued me, and are the inspiration for this card. First is The Shabby Tea Room. I just discovered their challenges, and I thought - "I really wanna do something Shabby". Second thing that interested me is the "Pastel Christmas" theme at Cupcake Craft. I figured those two things combined would make for an interesting card.

For these challenges -
As I mentioned, The Shabby Tea Room. They have a One ribbon, Two buttons, Three punch challenge. (Un-believable DT work!)
Cupcake Craft asks for pastel Christmas.
Polka Doodle and Stamptacular Sunday are both Christmas in July.

Thanks for looking,

What a fun holiday card you've created here! I love the pleated ribbon secured with the 2 buttons and adore the glittered snowflake. And how fun is that hat on the mannequin! Thanks for playing along with us at TSTR.

I love this "shabby" card Farrah. I cannot believe you have started on Christmas cards already. You put me to shame as mine are done at the very last minute.
