High Hopes for Christmas in July

It's time for Christmas in July cards!  In the past, I hosted a crop to make Christmas Cards for the Southern Ontario Animal Rescue (SOAR) to use during the holidays.  I am currently testing out my 6 x 6 one sheet wonder to make a holiday card set, so I am in the mood for holiday cards!

This week's card-making challenge at High Hopes Rubber Stamps is "Anything Goes".  I happen to have a holiday stamp from High Hopes that I bought specifically with SOAR in mind.  Here it is on my Christmas in July card:

I'm also on a scrap kick.  With my 6x6 one sheet wonder template, I'm trying to use up lots of my cardstock scraps for mats and things.  I decided to rifle through my patterned paper strips to come up with this ribbon border.  My High Hopes stamps are all very large images so I felt that only a touch of extra embellishment was needed.
I coloured the image very simply with my copic markers.  I was going to put a sentiment, but I think it's a pretty self-explanatory card!!
