Christmas in July

We had a slight change in our schedule, so had time to make a card today.  I do love making Christmas cards so was happy to see the Impression Obsession challenge is Christmas in July.  
When I saw the Mojo Monday sketch, the diagonal strip made me think of a wide ribbon.  I've had this beautiful red & white plaid a long time & loved being able to use some of it.  The card front is stamped with IO C-A-C Spatter using Distress Ink festive berries.  The IO Crochet Snowflake 2 is randomly stamped & white embossed on a panel. I also white embossed it on a scrap, trimmed it out & sponged on festive berries. I covered all the snowflakes with Wink of Stella.
The IO sentiment (B5518) is black embossed & trimmed out.  Finished off with red Rain Dots & it's still pretty flat for mailing. I'm also entering the first challenge at CAS-ual Chic.  
We're sure enjoying our cooler temperatures--even had a few raindrops today. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
