Christmas in July 2021 – Day 8

Happy Thursday everyone!

Welcome to Day 8 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and the current Color Hues challenge.

I used another recent purchase – the fabulous Bottlebrush Trees by Spellbinders and lots of different blue distress inks for the background.

To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Mama Elephant – their sentiment sets are turning into my go-to set AGAIN for this Christmas in July!!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. This is such a beautiful creation! I can see why you purchased those trees and I am sure they will get lots of use. Your blue inked background looks perfect and peaceful! Thanks for making our colors shine this time at Color Hues!


  2. I love the idea of using red and blue for a Christmas card! Your ink blending is beautiful and those bottlebrush trees are great! Thanks for joining us at Color Hues!


  3. I love your use of the tall trees with the sketch! The little stars in the corner are a lovely touch! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.


  4. Great take on the sketch and colours. Love the sparkly tree, so festive and your inked panel has so much depth.
    So pleased to see you inspired by the colours at Color Hues. 🙂


  5. What a super clean, crisp and modern Christmas card. I love these gorgeous “Bottlebrush Trees” diecuts and the fresh colors. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
