Christmas in July!

For this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge I decided to do some "Christmas in July"! This card is a mix of current, retired, and soon to be retired products from Close To My Heart.
Current products are the beautiful Fresh Air patterned papers, the Pewter cardstock, and Silver Sequins.  The retired products are the Wood Grain embossing folder used on the Pewter Cardstock (along with a little light sanding) and the Poppy Twine (which can still be found in the Clearance section of my shopping website!).

The soon to be retired... the Poppy and Juniper cardstock that I used to cut out my sentiment and the accent branch.  I bet you are saying WHAT! Poppy and Juniper are retiring!!!  I know, they have long been favorites of mine too but don't panic, I am sure the colours that are replacing them are going to be gorgeous.  The Cricut cuts are; Merry Christmas  - Artiste (retired) and for the Pine Needle Branch - Flower Market.

Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments!  I hope I have inspired you to play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I am also not the only one thinking Christmas in July and I am going to submit this card to Heart2Heart Challenges and Double Trouble Challenge #5

Happy Crafting!
