We're starting a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  This challenge is being hosted by yours truly and I've chosen the ever-popular 'Christmas in July' for the theme.  This challenge is being sponsored by Magnolia-licious.  Please hop over to the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge to get complete details on the challenge and to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to join us.

Here's the Christmas card I've created.

This is what the inside of the card looks like.
