Candy Cane Charlie Card

Hello! I started making this Candy Cane Charlie Card on Sunday but then our air conditioner started having problems and we went to a hotel. The heat index outside was 105 degrees but thankfully it only reached about 85 degrees in the house before it was fixed this afternoon. I was beginning to worry about my adhesive and stash of finished cards, but all is well.

While the house was cooling down I decided to finish this card. The layout is from the sketch challenge for day 2 of the Christmas in July challenge at Catch The Bug. Using Copic markers the Candy Cane Charlie image was colored and then die cut using a stitched circle die by My Favorite Things. The patterned papers have been in my stash for a very long time! I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the retired Good Greetings set by Stampin' Up! directly onto the patterned paper. Once all the layers were assembled three gold sequins were added for a little sparkle. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

This card is entered into the following challenges:
