Christmas in July - With a Twist!

I really enjoyed this challenge!  This is my first Design Team card for 2 Sisters Challenge Blog.  The challenge this week is Christmas in July with an optional twist.  The twist is to use no red or green on your card.  Success!  It really is quite difficult to think of Christmas with no red or green.

The image is from this week's sponsor, Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps; it's called Winter Robin.

The paper is from Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey.  The die is from Memory Box.
