OWH Christmas in July!

Thanks for stopping in and for all your support and encouragement.  I started this blog 2 months ago and I feel very blessed to be able to share what I love to do, and get support from so many of you talented ladies who realize exactly what it takes to put a card together!  It's not as easy as it looks making everything fit together as if it were intended to be that way!! This week Operation Write Home Challenge of the Week July 6, 2011 is Christmas in July!!  Looks like I'm working with lots of red this week after the CR84FN challenge:)
I started with this great flocked red and white paper and went from there adding lots and lots of layers.  I wanted to keep it extra special for Christmas so I embossed the sentiment with red embossing powder, added red glitter paper (the no flake type), and a bit of silver to the background.  I haven't mastered the photography end of blogging - I don't think all the layers show up as well as they could. My finished card size is the requested 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" and I was able to fit lots in.  
I hope you like it. Please leave a comment if you do because If I get a good response I always make more to send in.
