Well, there’s a reason for that title. See, I had this SU paper that when you brayer it with ink, you can wipe off the ink and the pattern stays white. Totally awesome stuff. Well, I saw words on it, but couldn’t read them. I figured they’d be French or something, so I decided to chance it. It turned out to be lines from Shakespeare’s Midsummer’s Night’s Dream. So… I had to figure out how on earth I could justify something from mid summer on a Christmas card. Well, I think my Australian friends are a perfect excuse!
This was for the Gina K “Non Traditional Christmas Colors” challenge. Well, I TRIED to use Gina K Stamps, but since I only own one set that is NOT Christmas, I was forced to use another stamp company’s sentiment. This was for the “unusual Christmas colors” challenge. I went with black, white, and silver.

Paper: PTI True Black, SU White on whiteness, Vellum, PTI White
Accessories: Walmart ribbon
Tools: Martha Stewart lace edge punch, Sizzix Noel label embosslitz, SU Embossing folder, Big Shot, Embossing powder, heat tool.

Again, since this isn’t a sketch challenge, I thought I’d give one of these puppies away. So, leave a comment and tell me if it looks even remotely Christmasish and you’ll be entered to win. I’ll draw sometime before Wednesday.
