Challenge #21 on Celebrate the Occasion/Tuesday Throwdown #56

Ironically, I was recently thinking that I should start making some Christmas cards now in order to make sure that they were done by Christmas, and lo and behold, both Celebrate the Occasion and Tuesday Throwdown presented Cricut challenges called "Christmas in July". For Celebrate the Occasion, the goal was to make a Christmas card with no red, which pretty much eliminated all ideas I had for Christmas cards at this point! However, I did not let that get me down. Using my favourite cartridge, Simply Charmed, and Stretch Your Imagination, I came up with this:

Now, back to work!
