Christmas in July, again.

I know, I know. Everyone is having a Christmas in July challenge. Hey, it’s that time of year. The weather has been hot and if we think Christmas or winter, it might help us get through these hot days. Your challenge is to make a Christmas card in non-traditional colors. Yip, no red, white and/or green as dominant colors. 

Before we get to our inspiration, let me show you what you can win (by random drawing) if you enter our challenge.
Isn't that awesome?  Your very own Stampin' Up Paper Piercing Essentials Pack - donated by a friend of YOUR SCRAPBOOK PLACE.  You have a chance to win it, but only if you enter our challenge. Rules at the bottom of this post.

Lets see what our designers have come up with
