A Square Merry Christmas with Rhonda

Happy Monday to you!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog.

I can't believe it's almost July! For my project today I am playing along with our new challenge theme for this week, "Christmas in July".

Merry Christmas (5"x5" card)

Recently I received the Poinsettia Strip flowers and I've been wanting to use them. This week's theme was the perfect opportunity! I started by trimming my card base to 10"x5" and folding in half to create my 5"x5" card.


Next I layered the Dutch Scallop Square, then the Horizon Square Boutique Stacker. The Sophie's Heart Mini Doily anchors my Sentiment Frame #2.  A cluster of Poinsettia's are arranged and bits of the Mega Holly Flourish are used for the leaves.

I finished the card with a sweet little gold bow and bell along with a bit of pearl and gem accents.
