Bitten By The Bug 2-Christmas In July

Bitten By The Bug 2 has a Christmas In July challenge going on. It ends Sunday night (8/5). Yeah I know, I'm really cutting this one close. After having the granddaughters here last weekend, I was so bushed and my mojo took a hike. I knew I had to get something made today. I stewed over what to make while I was at work. Came home and got busy. You know those times when you have something in your head and you pick your papers, get the cuts made and start putting it together and you say, now that isn't what it looked like in my mind!! That's what happened with my card. It looked totally different in my head than it looks put together!!! I guess I like it, but I'm not really sure. I cut the banner and Merry Christmas from the Jolly Holidays cartridge. The sentiment is #38 and the banner is #40 on the overlay. The bg paper is some I had in my stash. And that's it. Hope y'all like my card!!!! :)

Yes, I've had that happen, too. An idea in my mind but not looking like I envisioned it. Nonetheless, this is a fab card. I love how you took the cut out Noel and added it on the inside of the card. I've got to remember that. Thanks for playing at BBTB2.
