Every month I participate in a blog hop called the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop. There is a theme every month which is both a good thing( I like the challenge)and a not so good thing(it's a challenge). This month the theme was Christmas in July. You can go here to go on the hop. I had a hard time with the theme. I made 3 cards before deciding on the one to post and really if I had more time I might have made even more!
It is a monochromatic version of the card I ended up sharing on the blog hop. If you are wondering I cut 3 of the "joy"die, glued and stacked them so it would be more visible.
Not to worry I am not going to subject you to the 2nd try, it has already been gently put out of its misery.
