Christmas in July

I keep seeing Christmas cards popping up on people's blogs lately so I decided to start playing around with my new DRS designs Christmas stamp. From the first time I saw this stamp I knew that I wanted it, but I wasn't sure what I would do with it. For this card I decided to paper piece the Christmas bulbs and then create a sentiment with some rub-ons that I had laying around. The words "peace on EARTH" are all made with individual rub-on letters. To add a little more zing I added some glitter, double ribbon and some corner gems. I went with a simple layout again due to the size of the main image. Stamp is from DRS Designs, CS and ribbon comes from SU, rub-on letters are CK, the background DP is Basic Grey, the dp on the bulbs is from DCWV and from that handy SAMS club pack and the corner gems are once again from Target (sorry don't know the brand).
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
