Today at Tuesday Throwdown we are thinking ahead. Our Challenge today is Christmas in July. Time to get a jump on the Christmas Cards. Our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish and I am using the little Elf Elsie image.

Using a striped scrap that is stitched in black with a strip reversed and mounted onto the MS snowflake punched strip. I have used foam dots to attach the image. A red zipper down the side for a little fun and a tag tied on with some gold ribbon and a little bell. WHY didnt I used silver to match the zipper you ask. Because I was so focused on the little bells on the little elfs shoes and finding a bell to match I totally forgot the zipper was silver until I started adding the gold dots. Its called too much going on and not paying attention to details ;)

The team and our GD Debbie have some great cards so be sure to stop by for a visit.
