Christmas in July

This beautiful image is from the July Doodle Pantry release.  It is called Mini Bethlehem.  I colored it with Copics and added some Sand Flower Soft for some texture.  The sentiment is included with the image along with several more.  You also get colored versions and two digital papers.  How great is that?!  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You know it is never to early to get started on your Christmas cards.

These are the challenges I have entered:

The Squirrel and the Fox #21 - Christmas in July

Ladybug Crafts Ink - Christmas in July
