Merry Christmas (in July)

I made a Christmas card with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #188. I used MFT's PI-Angel and stamped her on X-Press It Blending Card, colored her with Copics and cut her out and mounted her with foam on MME Christmas Wish DSP.  I also paper-pieced her dress with some DSP from MME Vintage Christmas. The rest of the DSP is also from the same pad.  I used SU Sahara Sand for the mats and the card base is MFT Whip Cream.  I inked the edges of a couple of the DSP panels and also added some faux stitching to the image panel.  I added some Baker's Twine to the long vertical panel and used a SU Scallop Border punch for the edge.  The sentiment is from MFT LJD-Stitched Stockings.
 
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Merry Monday Challenge  Anything Goes Christmas Card Challenge
Crazy Hazelnut's Christmas Card Challenge:  A Christmas Card Suitable for A Child
http://operationwritehome.org/our-daily-bread-designs-july-challenge-2/ Challenge is for stitching (faux or real) and I did the faux stitching on my image panel - hope this counts.
 
Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your comments.
