Christmas in June for MTTC #252 and 52CCT June Stash Challenge (Charms)

Hello friends and followers - happy weekend to you all!
It's not often that my DT challenges line up at the same time - but this week they did.
For both challenges it's Christmas in June.  Here's the scoop...
At 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown (52CCT), our hostess Louise has a stash challenge 
for us and she wants us to use charms on our Christmas cards.
Over at My Time to Craft (MTTC) Challenges it's my turn to be the hostess 
and MTTC Challenge #252 is Christmas in June.  

Here's my DT card for both of the challenges:
Digital image by Lacy Sunshine - Flower Pot Pretties "Holly"

I added lots of glitter and shimmer this time.  It's hard to see in the photo
but there is green and red Stickles glitter on the holly leaves in the image.
I also used silver Stickles and Liquid Pearls in lavendar on the ornament.  
The holly dies, sentiment ticket and silver ribbon and charm are all from my stash. 
The Christmas papers are also from a couple years ago.  
I'm feeling great about using up so much of my extra stuff to make this card :o) 

Isn't this little lady a cutie?  She is from Lacy Sunshine's Flower Pot Pretties group.
There is a fun challenge going on over on the Lacy Sunshine Facebook Group
called SAVE THE FLOWER POT PRETTIES.  This is my first entry in that challenge. 

I am also entering this card in these other great challenges:
The Outlawz Challenges - Friday's Coloring Challenges - Twist of Christmas
Christmas Card Challenge #30 - Photo Inspiration (mine was the ornaments)
Merry Monday #114 - Use sparkle, shimmer or shine 
The Sketchy Challenges #75 Hilde's Sketch (see below)

Penny's Paper-Crafting Challenge #183 - Embossing heat or dry

I hope that  you will decide to join us at both 52CCT and MTTC for these
June Christmas challenges.  The 52CCT Stash challenge ends Friday, July 4th.
The MTTC Challenge #252 is a fortnight challenge which will run for 2 weeks.  
Please go visit my lovely DT team mates at both of these challenges.
They have prepared some amazing Christmas creations to share with and inspire you.
Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
