KennyKs Christmas in July

July is half over. Where did the time go? At KennyKs Krafty Krew we are up to challenge #199. Expect something extra special for challenge #200! Back to the challenge at hand. As always our challenges are Anything Goes with a twist. For this challenge the twist is 
Christmas July
That's pretty much self explanatory! Just remember you must use a KennyK image to enter. Don't have a KennyK image? Be sure to stop by KennyK downloads and grab the monthly freebie. Now show us what you got!

I really struggled with this challenge. We're in the middle of the golf season here in Michigan and Christmas was the last thing on my mind. I'd colored the image a couple of weeks ago but inspiration didn't follow. Finally I dug into a box of Recollections cards that I bought on clearance last year. Next I dug into my drawer of Christmas paraphernalia and came up with the Christmas tree rub on. From there I used an EK Success edge punch, Frantic Stamper Inc Wavy Banner Stamp and die and finally the sentiment from a Studio G $1 stamp. Of course no card is complete without bling and foam squares!
