Stamping & Chalks - Christmas in June

Here's my card for Christmas in June - continuing the idea of posting a Christmas card on the last Thursday of each month to remind us to keep working on our Christmas cards.  We don't want to have an overwhelming job at Christmas time! 

The Christmas tree was stamped with white pigment ink on a dark purple paper and then colored with chalks and Smooch ink.  As you can see, it's matted on a couple of die cuts (all die cuts this time come from Spellbinders dies).  The patterned paper and additional embellishments are from a couple of sets from Hot Off the Press.  Here's what the inside looks like:

Christmas cards already. I haven't even thought about them yet. Last year PW MB had a 'challenge' to get one done each month and there was an idea to follow; they didn't do it this year, but is a good idea. Your card is beautiful. Thanks for the reminder !
