“Christmas In July” Designer’s Challenge

Welcome to another fabulous Design Team Saturday Challenge.

The Challenge…

This week’s challenge is hosted by Michelle H.

I really like the Christmas in July theme. Especially with the way our weather has been here lately. VERY HOT and I can’t wait for cooler weather to get here. I also wanted to throw in a twist. When you think of Christmas – most of us think in terms of the colors red & green. I wanted to go outside that ‘proverbial’ box and use different colors, so I also included NO red or green. You may use them on your image – but I wanted to see different colors used on the card or in the embellishments.

Challenge Rules are HERE. Be sure to check them out and link back to Designed2Delight.com/blog.

One lucky person will win a free image from the Designed2Delight Store. Winner is announced the Sunday after the challenge closes.

**Any image can be used to be eligible for this prize.
