This is a challenge I need as I'm still making up my June card quota, LOL. I'll get my thinking hat on at work this morning as to how to work summer colours into it . Thanks, Dawn.

Here's my Strawberry & Pistachio Bauble card for this challenge. I really struggle doing Christmas cards in July as it's just too early for me, but I really enjoyed doing this one. Think it must have been the pretty colour combo that did it for me!

TFL, Vannessa
