DT Post - Phindy's Place Friday Challenge #20- Christmas in Summer

Welcome to Friday and to another challenge at Phindy's Place!  This week we're helping you get a head start on Christmas again, the challenge is to make a Christmas card or project, using Phindy's lovely images.

I used a simple and elegant image called We Meet Again, which could be a Valentines' card image as well as for Christmas.  I wanted to use it as it needs little colouring and as I send a lot of Christmas cards I decided it would be really useful for quick and easy cards.  But I wanted do something a bit more interesting than quick and easy, so I decided to team it with a sheet of Magnolia Christmas paper that I bought last year and haven't cut into yet because it's so beautiful.  Yes, I know, there's a flaw in that logic:). 

Because I wanted to see plenty of the DP I made a card from grey Bazzill, put the DP inside and made a shaped card.  The card is based very loosely on Sketch Saturday's Challenge.  The image is popped up on pads on top of some Cuttlebugged cardstock and then I cut round it to expose the inside.  There arePeel-offs on the red corners, haven't used peel-ofs for ages!  Image is coloured with copics and Stickles, sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

This card is entered for the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday's Challenge - sketch
Cute Card Thursday - no dies or punches
Papertake Weekly Challenge - 3-2-1 recipe (1 image, 2 triangles, 3 peel-offs on triangles)
