Is it too early for Christmas?

My husband and I enjoy Sunday afternoon drives and not long ago we noticed a few homes with Christmas lights still up…then I pointed out we can’t say “still” because after June 25th, we are officially on the downhill slide toward the holidays = Now we should consider these merry folk “EARLY” with their decorating! So I’m just helping you get a jump on the holidays and help you create some lovely greeting cards EARLY with the Big Shot August Special and the Bright & Beautiful stamp set and framelits:

Card Recipe (All supplies from Stampin’ Up!): 
Stamps: Bright & Beautiful stamp set (Holiday Catalog!)
Ink: Silver Encore pad (132142)
Paper: Whisper White and Smoky Slate card stock, Silver Fancy Foil Vellum (133364), Silver Foil Sheets (132178)

And special thanks to Create with Connie and Mary for the beautiful sketch challenge this week (CCMC315)…it was perfect for this card!
