"Be Jolly", Christmas in July.

Phew, I barely was able to eek this card out in July.  I wanted to post this as this card is featured in "Raise the Bar" challenge this week, the theme of the Challenge is Stickers.  YES, that is a sticker in the center of the Tim Holtz ornament, it would be great to pop on over and see what they are brewing up this week at Raise the Bar.    I do like this card, I think it is classy, understated and elegant.  The pictures are not the best, I think the batteries are getting low on the camera, I have noticed at least in this camera that it does make a difference in the quality of the photo.  But on to give you an idea of how the "Be Jolly" card turned out. 
There is the sticker pack I used on this card, I hope to use more of these stickers on future Holiday cards.  There are some beautiful ones out right now, and stickers have vastly improved in style the past several years.  I had hoped to hook up of some card challenges with this card but I am afraid I am SO tired that it just is not going to be happening today/night but hopefully tomorrow.  Hope all is well with you, Jane
