Inspiration Team Challenge 07/30 & A Freebie

Melanie, at Scrappily Ever After, has been celebrating Christmas in July, and today is the day for a photo challenge! The team of gals she put together to help inspire others to create cards for Operation Write Home has some amazing submissions for you, so be sure to check out Melanie's blog! 
Today's card is based on the photo of Christmas lights...ooooooooo, prettttyyyy! :) They always do mesmerize me!
In the spirit of using up my scraps, and trying to ease the burden of moving them all when the time comes, I made this card for this challenge.

I'm a terrible photographer, so I scan my cards. This tree is on pop-dots, and I ended up with a shadow, and a slight blur to my pic - sorry! I tried.......and failed.. :( I'm going to try to do better next time. Maybe I'll even pull out the camera and try to shoot the photo. Maybe.
Material List
SU Cardstock from Scrap Pile - Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Confetti Cream
Leftover Christmas Light Brads & Star Brad Buddy
SU Ink - Garden Green
Sponge Dauber
Pop DOts
SU Stamp - Short & Sweet
(The christmas tree was traced from a jpg image in SCAL).

In honor of the end of our Christmas in July theme, I have three papers for you today!
Thanks for checking out my submission to the challenges! I hope that I inspired you a little, and that you come back next month for our school theme! 
See you soon!
