Merry Christmas (in August)

 
ETA:  Yea, my card was an Honorable Mention at Merry Monday.
 
Good morning fellow stampers.  It is a beautiful morning here in Central Florida.  Here are the details for my card.  I started with the sketch from Merry Monday #69 challenge.  I used the red, white, and green color combo from Christmas Stampin All Year Long and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 137 - picture inspiration challenges. 
 

I used Canvas Corp. Heavy White CS for my card base and the embossed panel, which is partially embossed with SU Snowburst EF.  The DSP is from Echo Park's Very Merry Christmas 6x6 pad.  I stamped the poinsettia from Sweet & Sassy's Christmas Is set, colored them with Copics and cut them out. They are mounted with foam tape.  I also added some Sunny Yellow Flower Soft to the centers.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is from Verve's Peace On Earth set, stamped in Mememto Tuxedo Black ink.  I used a SU border punch for the Cherry Cobler borders and a Garden Green strip embossed with my stylus, across the white panel. 
That's it for my card.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate your comments.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
