Christmas in July - Easy Stamped Ribbon Card

Hello!  Today I am participating in a Christmas in July challenge.  It gives me an extra push to get more Christmas cards done early.  The following card was easy to make and fun since I got to stamp a lot.

I decided to make two cards while I had the supplies out, just slightly different.

You should have seen how many versions of the little sentiment I did.  I embossed, added glitter, etc., etc.  But in the end I just used a red marker to accent it.  

Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Ribbons and Rick Rack, Hero Arts Sentiment, Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink  in Olive Pastel, Lipstick and Yellow Ochre, Versafine Onyx Black ink, cardstock from my stash, Tombow marker

I would love to participate in the following challenge:

Hi Heidi, beautiful cards, love all the stripes in lovely Christmas colours, glad to know I'm not the only one who tries things out multiple ways, I keep spare sentiments in a zip-lock bag on my table for later use... have a great week... Megan

Very nice work. I do love the ric rac and have a die one I totally forgot about. It's nice to get a jump start on your Christmas cards.
