Christmas Door

Happy Friday! 
I hope your week has gone well! We have a had a very unusual little cool front here. Temps only in very low 80's. How weird! You go to bed one day and it's a hot, humid July and wake up the next day and it feels like September. Wouldn't it be wonderful if it lasts all of August? I wonder if all the Christmas cards we've been making around here gave the weather a little cool boost. Here's hoping another Christmas card will help the cool trend. 

For my card, I used the adorable little Christmas Leonard Pig image. After coloring, I fussy cut him and added him in front of my die cut door and brick embossed "wall". I die all the little greenery (it was white, but I colored it green w/ Copics) and attached it to a left over ring that was die cut w/ circles, to make my wreath. I added the greeting and some stickles for a little holiday sparkle. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
