Wishing you a

Merry Christmas in July!!  Today begins another challenge from Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog: It's a Triple Play.  That means you have to use 3 of any kind of embellishment (be creative, you'll find lots of triples if you try) and please make sure you have stamping (either rubber/clear or digital) somewhere on your project.  The three sponsors for our challenge are:
Karleigh Sue Designs

Pickled Potporri

Bugaboo Digi Stamps

I got to work with an image from Bugaboo Stamps and I chose this adorable Little Penguin Winter, hence the Christmas card.
 With the 4th of July holiday just past, I felt in a patriotic mood and went with the red, white and blue color scheme.  I think it's a bit unexpected and fresh for Christmas, don't you.  For my triple play, I have 3 flowers, three brads, three pearls and three types of embellishments: ribbon, flower, pearls.
Here is the inside of the card with the remainder of the sentiment:
