Challenge #17-Christmas In July

It's Christmas in July at My Craft Spot this Monday! The great thing about thinking about Christmas projects now, is handmade card sets are possible. I am excited to make this card into a set for my Grandma. My Grandma is from Ohio and she loves Cardinals. A Christmas card set with Cardinals is perfect. I finished one for my example, and now I just need to finish 50 more.
The vintage twine is from My Craft Spot.

Glossy accents on the berries adds a lot.

I hope everyone plays along this week. It's fun and I LOVE looking at everyones projects. Of course winning YOUR color of choice is a wonderful prize and is also fun. :) Link up your card/project here. Have a great week!
