It's the dog days of July and it's beyond hot, so I am looking for some cool Yule to make me think of more temperature-friendly climes and more body-friendly attire. Yup, I said it! I want my jeans back. No they are not "mom jeans" but they at least hid a multitude of over-40-related side effects.
At the fabulous and inspiring Jingle Belles Challenge, they are asking for cards that are Green OR Red! I really enjoy this challenge and its fun prompts. They really help me get ahead on my holiday cards! If you haven't been over there, do check them out!
I opted for the Green as, like I said, I was looking for something cool and I just can't deal with reds when it's over 90F.
I stamped the cuddling couple from Snow Hugs and paper pieced them with a variety of soft green designer papers, mostly ginghams because that was the mood I was in. I used a little leftover Green Ruche (from Paper Temptress) for the man's cuffs and brim of his hat. I love it's great texture.
Here's the final card:
I am also entering this card into the following awesome challenges:
