It's Christmas in July at The Outlawz

Good morning friends,
This is a little too close for comfort having Christmas in July...5 months from now most of us will be running around doing last minute things, but at least we can relax now as we only have to make a Christmas card and that will be one less to do at Christmas.

As you can see this is the twist of  colour challenge at The Outlawz this week
and I was the lucky one to choose the inspirational photo, colour palette and twist. This is the photo and colour palette and you only choose 3 of the colours for your card. Please don't forget to tell us which colours you are choosing.

Our challenge is being sponsored by Bugaboo for the month of July and the DT have made gorgeous cards using images from Bugaboo stamps.

Please pop over and see what they have created and we would love you to join in the fun...and you will also have a card or two made ahead of the rush.

For my card I used the following colours: Warning Red, Cliff top green and Sky blue.

Card recipe:
Paper: red cardstock matted DP 'Christmas Cottage' from Teresa Collins
Image - Poinsettia and you can find it here. I printed 2 images coloured with Twinkling H20's, cut one of the flowers out and mounted that on the other image with silicone for a 3D effect. Added beads in the centre and cut it all out.
The Christmas trees were cut from a Marianne Design diecut, added some glitter and as I had forgotten my third colour of sky blue, I added that with Pontura pearl makers as baubles on the trees..
I mounted the second tree with 3D foam pads.
Ribbon and pearls to finish
