Christmas in July card

I recently participated in a Christmas in July swap and I included this Saturated Canary Christmas card in my partner's package. Her name is Nikki (click on the thumbnail below).  I just love Krista's cute little girls.  They are such fun to color with my Copic markers.  They've been feeling quite neglected lately. LOL

My partner loves aqua blue and kraft so this card just fit the bill.  I tried to keep it as simple as possible as that's her style as well.  I'm pretty happy with how it came out.  I really had to restrain myself from adding too much frou frou or blingity bling bling. LOL

Card details are as follows:
MME "Be Merry" 6x6 paper pad
Nesties:  round & scalloped round
Kraft cardstock
Stash items:  Jute, Paper Doilies, Recollections bling
