Christmas in May

I have been vowing for a long time to get a head start on my Christmas cards.  My original goal was at least one a week.  It is now May 19th and I finally have one done.  I must admit I probably would not even have this one done if it weren't for the challenge over at Phindy's Place this week.  The challenge is to create a Christmas card using one of Phindy's images.  Now it is finally warm and sunny here so I should really be out trimming bushes and getting my annuals bought but this was way more fun.

The image is called Deck The Halls and has been coloured with a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons.  The papers are from a Provo Craft Scrap Pack and the card stock is Recollections (MIchaels).  The sentiment is computer generated.  Other supplies used:  Chalk (Mungyo), Star Dust Stickles (Ranger), Branch Punch (Martha Stewart) and Buttons (Michaels).
