Shady Tree Studio Christmas in July

 I made this card for Mojo Monday 198. I used to play MM all the time, but I'll bet it has been over a year since my last entry. I also used the color palette for this week's Summer Card Camp, so this works for two challenges. I rarely make a card that qualifies for two challenges because I'm too unorganized to follow so many rules at once. This one wasn't too hard because it was a color challenge from one source and a sketch from the other. Even I can handle that!!
 I used SU! Cameo Coral, Pink Passion, Green Galore and Glorious Green here, plus MME Everyday Tango. I used SU!'s Noteworthy set on the little tag. It's the sweetest set. I put it in my Etsy shop to destash because I never use my SU! stamps anymore, and now that it's out where I can see it, I use it on everything!!
 This card is the whole reason for the post today! Shady Tree Studio is celebrating Christmas in July! The DT will be featuring past STS Christmas sets for the next week or so, then we'll begin sneak peeks of two MUST HAVE new sets, then we'll have a blog hop with prizes on the 29th and the sets will be available for purchase!!
 I used the sweetest set called Holly Jolly to make this card. I love the set, it just makes the prettiest cards!! The ornament is quick, easy and fun to color, and I love the font used on the sentiments in this set. I used SU! Handsome Hunter for my base, and then scraps of Melissa Frances and Bazzil, I think.
 These tags are for my Etsy shop. I love this little tree from A Muse Studio. It's from Woodland Friends.
