Window Wishes - Christmas in July Color Challenge - Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop

 Welcome to my Christmas in July Color Challenge card for the Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop.  I chose the new Window Wishes Bundle from the July-December Mini Catalog to use for my card.  

The Stamping INKspiration's Hop is mixing things up a bit with this Christmas in July Theme-

  We had the choice  of a cold color pallet or a warm color pallet. 

  Since my home has snow for Christmas more often than not - I chose the cold weather pallet on the left,  consisting of  Cherry Cobbler, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Sahara Sand & Early Espresso.

I actually kind of messed up because I thought Crumb Cake was one of the colors - not Sahara Sand - but I still got my three colors in there - which are Cherry Cobbler as the candles and bow, Evening Evergreen as the base and evergreens,  & Soft Succulent as the lighter color of the evergreens.

This was made from the Window Wishes Bundle with the exception of the bow and the Christmas Tree - the Window Wishes includes a bow but I love thicker, fuller bow from the Cottage Wreaths Die set. The Christmas Tree is from the SALE a-bration Die Set - Tree Lot dies which is free with a $100 purchase until the end of August (while supplies last). The swag under the candles is just another of the window topper swags cut into smaller pieces. 

The Evergreen striped "wallpaper" inside the window is from Boughs of Holly DSP pack. I speckled my outdoor greenery and bow with some white ink in hopes of snow for Christmas!

I like to decorate the insides of my cards, as well as the envelopes.  The Window Wishes comes with several sentiments, but I really love both the font and the words of the sentiment I chose from the Brightest Glow stamp set.

Just a nice little wreath with the word peace is a beautiful way to greet whom ever opens this card!
I hope you enjoyed my card! 

 Now it is on to see what everyone else has done for this Christmas Color Challenge Hop!
It will be fun to see which color pallet everyone uses.
