Oh my gosh, where did June go? July is here and with the new month comes a wonderful new release from Doodle Pantry. When you stop by Doodle Pantry to see the new release, be sure to check out the Specials Page to read the details about July's specials and the sale going on through July 8.
Also, starting today at noon EDT on the Doodle Pantry Blog is a new Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 48. This month's theme for DPDC48 is "Make it Christmas or Make a Splash". You do not have to use a Doodle Pantry image to enter the challenge, but the image must be digital. There will be three $10 randomly selected winners from all entries. So why not break out your digis and join in the fun!
Today, I am sharing a card using one of the DPDC48 themes -- Make it Christmas. For my first Christmas card of the year, I used the lovely Flying Dove digital image and added a tiny leaf sprig to the dove that I cropped from one of the 12 Day of Christmas COLOR plus images. The digital paper is from the Updated Blessed Christmas set. I used three different circle dies from Spellbinders as well as the ray of sunshine cutting plate from Taylor Expressions. Lots of bling and a sheer dotted bow finish my design.
I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly July Challenge -- Anything Goes with an optional extra, Christmas in July
Card Mania Challenge CMC #50 -- Circles
Craft Your Passions Challenge 220 -- Ribbons (you must use at least one ribbon)
Craft Galore Encore Challenge -- Use a stamp or digi on your project.
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for July 2014 -- Anything Goes
Dies R Us Challenge #5 -- Christmas in July
If you live in the States, I hope you have a happy and safe Fourth of July. Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
