Tree-mendous Traditions

Today and tomorrow Craftin' Desert Divas is joining up with Lovebug Creations for Christmas in July FB hop. There is a whole lot of inspiration to be seen over the next two days. I hope you will join us! To participate in the hop and have a chance to win a few prizes, stop by me FB page, M Miranda Creations, for all the details. 
 
 
My card pairs up Craftin' Desert Divas Holly Day Punnies stamp set with Simply Red Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations.
 
I did something a bit different for me this time. My card measures 3 7/8" by 9 1/4". This allowed me to really stretch out the tree that comes from the Christmas Tree set from KaDoodle Bug Designs. I like the unusual shape and size yet simple design.
 
Supplies Used:
 
Craftin' Desert Divas -
 
Lovebug Creations -
 
KaDoodle Bug Designs:
 
Teresa Collins:
Christmas Cottage Paper
 
Papertrey Ink:
Vintage Cream Cardstock for the Base

If this is the second comment I apologize, but the card is just so beautiful with the clean lines, lovely background and fun ribbon I had to be sure and let you know. Thank you for posting this wonderful art with us at Word Art Wednesday. Hoping to see you again really soon.

This is absolutely gorgeous, Melissa! Love the colors and the design. Thanks for blessing us with your card at our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with God's Word of encouragement in Psalm 16:8 which says, "I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken." God bless always.
