Impression Obsession - Christmas in July Challenge

I designed this one for one of Impression Obsession's Challenges. You can check out the Impression Obsession Challenges HERE. I don't think Shirley has set up a particular day of the week she post the challenges. So if you want to be up to date on all the lates IO news and challeges, subscribe to the blog. That's what I do.
You can also view their catalogs online
HERE. Alesa Baker is fabulous!! I love Leigh Hannon as well! I need to get my local stamp store to place an order for me!!

So I didn't think I had a christmas stamp to play along, and of course AFTER I finished this card (this one is not technically a christmas stamp) I found one, hehe. Well this one worked out ok. And I had fun. Well I had fun coloring that is. I had this crazy idea that it would be fun to stamp the image multiple times, cut up the pieces and pop them up ... NOT !! But I do like the way it looks!! NO PAIN, NO GAIN!
Now if I can just find sometime to play with some of my other stamps. My GinaK stamps are collecting dust. I gotta get busy!

Melisa, this is just stunning. I LOVE your big popped up flower - it catches your eye the instant the photo loads! Beautiful card - thanks for sharing with us! (Now, RUN to your girl cave and get out those GKD stamps and show us some more pretties!)
