H2H July Wk 3 - Merry Everything

My Design Team Card for Heart2Heart Challenges was combined with Tuesday Morning Sketch #411 "Christmas in July", but flipping sketch upside down.  

This week's Challenge is all about "In Stitches".  Maybe it's technique time or maybe you need to scrapbook a moment that had you "in stitches" Or heaven forbid someone actually had medical stitches.  It wasn't a difficult choice for me to put stitches on my card because a lot of my frame dies have stitches.  Chose some pretty design papers from one of my favorite chirstmas paper packs "White Pines" (a retired paperpack which I loved so much got a couple of packets and still have a lot of my stash). 


I did several different color cuts on the glowing candle die and patiently pieced them together.  Added some red berries to the foliage.  Sentiment was stamped on design paper in cranberry ink, corners snipped and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.  

Join us at Heart2Heart this week and other challenges in July... Remember you have all month to create to be eligible for recognition as one of the Top 10 "Darlings".  AND if you create a project for each challenge in the month of July, you will earn a badge as an H2H Addict for Perfect Attendance.

OK - Christmas in July... gorgeous card with lots of layers and I love the stitched dies. The touch of green does a lot to set off all the red and make it not feel so overwhelming. I really like this card :)
