Christmas in July at CTO

Hello all!! How is your week going? Summer has arrived in Redding with a bang! Been in the 100's all week. Today I got to play in my room a little bit and I made this card for the Christmas in July challenge at Celebrate the Occasion. Part of the challenge was you couldn't use red. I thought I might have a problem with that since I love the traditional colors, but I think this worked. Here's the recipe:

Recollection cardstock
DCWV pattern paper
Image cut from Smiley Cards
Sentiment stamp from Scrappy Moms Stamps
Stampin' Up Ink
American Crafts Ribbon
Glossy Accents
White Gelly Roll Pen

Well, DH should be home any minute and I need to run. Hope you like my card, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
