Have A Wild Christmas!

I'm playing in the Christmas In July week challenges at Catch The Bug and have my first card to show you.

Monday's challenge at Catch The Bug is to make a Christmas card using non traditional colors.

I definitely went non traditional on this one! LOL I chose a fun leopard print paper from my stash.! My card uses MMSC113 Sketch at Priscilla's Styles
I wanted to add some sexiness to it, so I added a strip of black lace, then embellished with three button,s also from my stash. The sentiment is mounted with foam mounting tape for dimension. I added glitter and sparkle to the image in spots, with my clearstar gelly roll pen. The image is colored with Promarkers.

I am entering this wild card in the following challenges:
