Christmas in July

This is a great sketch by Unscripted Sketches. I decided to use a 6x6 paper pad purchased in London and gifted to me. It is the craziest paper pad I've ever seen! The theme is Christmas, but the various papers do not coordinate with each other. I want to use these up this Christmas, but am having a hard time. All the patterns in this card are from this pad. As you can see, the reds do not match. Some of the papers are brown (for the holidays?), some are blue, and some are pink. I guess I'll purchase coordinating Bazzill cardstock and go from there...
