Retro sketches Shout out & Xmas card

I was so excited today to find that my Bird cage card
won a shout out badge at Retro sketches isn't it just the cutest blinky.  Thanks so much to the DT for picking my card. 
Today I am doing another of my xmas cards and at the Merry Monday challenge they are having a month long challenge.  You can pick any sketch that they have for the 4 weeks in the month of July.  So I picked sketch #6 today and chose some of the bright funky xmas paper stock that I brought from Kaisercraft. Its a 6x6 paper pack called Christmas Carnival Collection.  I thought it was great as it is always summer here at xmas time. Its nice to have more of a beach color on some of my xmas cards.  I am using one of there embroidered badges matches so well with this paper.

So this is no 4 of my 25 cards for xmas so 21 to go....

I am also entering this card in The squirrel and the fox challenge #21 who this week are having xmas in July.

Have a great day 
Sandy :)
