Christmas in July

That's the theme for our challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil this week. Maybe the DT is wishing for cooler temperatures here in the U.S. 

Mo has just created several new Christmas/holiday images that are darling.. but I chose an older one that I hadn't colored yet.  Frankly, it's hard to pick.

I wanted to create a clean and simple card for this image to allow these little cherubs to be the focal point. Tip of the Day...The music was a download after a Google search for Christmas piano sheet music. Try it out~
Several of you asked for more details about yesterday's card.. I used the SU embossing folder called "Elegant Lines".. one of their newer folders. The swirl on the lower right is a QuikKutz die underneath the Sizzix foral die cut.  Thanks for all of the great comments.

I'm wishing you a terrific day, sweet friends!  'Til tomorrow, have fun, and be safe in all you do.

This is a darling image and I love how you've colored it. The music paper is perfect! I just loaded up on a bunch of Mo's new images, mostly Christmas, now to find the time to get them all colored!!

Thanks for the tip on the embossing folder from yesterday's card. It is beautiful!
