52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown July Colour Challenge ..............

Good Afternoon Readers,
Well is it hot enough for you all.......... here in Cornwall it is a another very hot day...... even the breeze is hot, I sat out in the garden for a bit this afternoon and had my lunch under the shade of my apple tree, but it was still hot, and I do feel sorry for my dogs in this weather, because they follow me everywhere, they were all trying to lay in the shade with me, so I ate my lunch and came inside were it was slightly cooler, even at 06.30 this morning you could tell it was going to be a scorcher of a day, I rode Ace early but we both felt the heat even at 08.00, and Ace is black so he attracted the heat, so I left him in the cool of his stable, and came home, once I got myself cleaned up I left the dogs in the cool and popped in to town to visited the little craft shop we have, and of course I did not come out empty handed, so I have a little more to add to my stash, tomorrow I am going to my son's new house for a barbecue, as it is my Grandson Jacobs 1st birthday on Monday, so will take my camera and get lots of pics.... and today I joined in with the fun over on 52cct.blogspot. and my entry is below, I should have looked at this challenge before I went in to town, only I did not have any dark green card stock in my stash, all other shades of green but not dark, oh well it's a good excuse to visit the craft shop again, not that I need one...... so I improvised by using Dark Green Peel offs, and 2 Dark Green Brads......

Recipe for my Design,
C5 Ivory Linen Effect Card Base
Chocolate Brown Card Stock
Berry Red Card Stock 
2 x Dark Green Leaf Brads
Dark Green Border Peel Offs,
