Double Trouble - Christmas in July with stars and stripes

This week I am catching up with some of my Christmas card making so I will have most of them done before December gets here. This card was made for the Double Trouble challenges this week to make a Christmas card and to use stars and stripes. I used some scraps that were lying around on my work desk, then I found the design paper for the star with the gold stripes and the design paper for the background that had gold stars all over it. The star is a die from Gina Marie designs as is the Holy Family die. The holly is a Sizzix die that I cut from plaid paper and colored over with a Copic marker. The red berries are small red rhinestones and the smaller gold star is a rhinestone as well. 
You can find the details for both the Double Trouble challenge and the Jingle Belle challenge here:
