Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring The Greeting Farm "Naughty or Nice"

Hello and welcome to Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!!! Happy Tuesday everyone and hope you are all having a fantastic week so far!  This week's challenge is a fun one! The theme of this week is "Christmas in July".

Our wonderful sponsor this week is QKR Stampede!!!

Here is my card for this week's challenge...

This card features the "Nice" image of The Greeting Farm "Naughty or Nice" stamp set from the Cherry Cheeky Collection.  Of course they both look so innocent to me but the nice image always make a great Christmas card so when I saw this theme, I thought she would be perfect! :) I often use this image and just love how versatile she is for so many different kinds of cards.  I've used her on a past Christmas project and her "Naughty" counterpart on a previous Halloween project.  It's an awesome set to get and Laura has it available at the store so grab them while you can! :)  I think I'll use this image for the Christmas cards I usually give out to my co-workers.  I'm kind of known in the office now for my cards and my group especially looks forward to receiving them for Christmas.  Last year, I used "Holiday Anya" and the year before I used the cute image from "A Cheeky Christmas".  We'll see, I know TGF will come up with more adorable images for the holidays and I can't wait! :) The paper collection I used is called "Holiday Style" by October Afternoon.  This is a collection from last year but such fun bright papers and I'm already planning to make a few more Christmas cards using this collection.  I edged all of my papers in Broken China distress ink by Tim Holtz.  I laid my cute angel on some layered Spellbinders called 2011 Heirloom Ornaments. The sentiment comes from another TGF Christmas stamp set. The Poinsettias are from Petaloo and I am Roses.   I love the white one!  I sprayed them up with my Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold to give them some nice shimmer.  Finally, I added some Kaiser Craft red rhinestones to finish off my card!

Other items used:
Black Tuxedo-Memento Ink
