Christmas in July for Word Play Weekend #9

Happy Weekend everyone and welcome to another Word Play Weekend challenge.

This week's word is actually two words LOL


I always start sometimes in July with christmas cards. Because if I don't I get stressed out once it's time to mail them. I hope you'll join me in this challenge.

Here is my card.

While I absolutely love this stamp from Lili of the Valley, I was totally uninspired by the designer papers I had. So... I went the easy route and used non. I just used my swiss dots embossing folder to add some texture.

Products used:

Stamps: Lili of the Valley woodland christmas, Stampin up sentiment
Paper: Bazzill, Neenah
Accessories: white grosgrain ribbon, stickles glitter
Tools: Derwent coloursoft pencils, baby oil for blending, Cuttlebug embossing folder (swiss dots), large oval punch (Stampin Up)

I'd like to combine the following challenges:


And now it is time for last week's featured card. Thank you to everyone that shared their creations with me last week! Here is my favorite card from the entries:
