Christmas in July: Nutcracker Sweet Card

RRR Pink and Purple Challenge: Nutcracker Sweet Card

RRRChallengeBadgeHello, Ribbon Lovers!  Are you ready for a little Christmas in July?  Today is the start of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Pink and Purple Challenge.  And you know what?  This really was a challenge for me!  I had to search high and low in The Closet of Shame to find papers that would work for this theme.  Thankfully, I remembered that I had some Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet Christmas papers tucked away.  Problem solved!

For extra texture, I added some Ivory Burlap string to the mix.

Pockets Stuffed with Nutcracker Sweet!
