Bugaboo Christmas in July Day #4 + Double Trouble Challenge #5 Card #2

Today I decided to combine the Catch the Bug Challenge with the Double Trouble Challenge.
And I am doing it with a miserable summer cold, which is a challenge in and of itself.  
 The Bugaboo Christmas in July Challenge has provided a Bingo board for everyone to use for Day #4.


And Double Trouble #5 is also celebrating Christmas in July + a sentiment, with a fancy fold twist and an extra entry if you link to the Anything Goes Christmas in July Heart 2 Heart Challenge.

I decided to make a simple gift card holder.

When you open the card the inside pocket with the gift card is exposed. 

Challenges I am entering ..... 
Catch the Bug Tuesday Bingo Challenge - I used the center row down- Die Cut, Bugaboo Image, and Pink Striped Washi Tape.
Double Trouble Challenge #5 - Christmas in July with a sentiment + a fun fold 
Heart2Heart Challenge - Anything Goes Christmas in July (stamp, washi tape and glitter tape are CTMH)
52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge - Non traditional Christmas (hot pink and lime green are a bit non  traditional)
Fussy & Fancy Challenge #216 - Green and Pink
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Crafty Christmas 
A Snowflakes Promise Challenge #53 - AG
Die Cut Divas Challenge #379 - Christmas in July (scalloped frame)
Christmas with the Cuties Challenge #18 - Add some Sparkle

I'm sure the gals at Joyce's CTMH card class are having fun and making lovely cards.  Although we share many things around Joyce's craft table, I decided NOT to share this miserable cold.
