Christmas in July 4 - The Night Before Christmas

I am back today with  Christmas in July card 4. I did a lot of masking on this one, combining four different stamp sets and two CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas to create a sweet living room scene where this little guy is being read "The Night Before Christmas" story. The main image was from the Quality Time set which was part of the last release. The Christmas tree came from the Merry Christmas, Honey set. I wiped off the honey pot portion of the Christmas tree before stamping and then finished off the bottom part of the tree and added more garland with a Copic Multinliner pen. The gifts came from the A Beary Good Year and Deck the Hall sets. I used the Windows CutUps to create a window as well as the Queen of Hearts Cutups for the valance. It's looks like someone is getting a puppy for Christmas, huh?
