Merry and Bright

     One more card for the Catch the Bug week-long, Christmas in July challenge.  I'm trying to play each day and so far, I'm staying caught up.  Today they have a color challenge and this one was fun to do.

     The image is from Bugaboo Stamps (Edited to add:  I've been informed that this is an image from Paper Pretties but for some unknown reason, I had it saved in my folder of Bugaboo images.  My apologies to both companies.) and is colored with ProMarkers and die cut with a framing die by Spellbinders.  Mounted onto black CS.  The bow was originally white but I 'dyed' it with a marker.  Fast, simple, and CAS even though it looks much more complex because of the frame.
