Christmas in July

Hello friends!  I was watching a video on making a telescopic card and decided I needed to try that.

Now, there are a few things about my card that I don't like.  For one, I added the circle while it was open and didn't notice that the sentiment was a bit wonky.  And IRL those hearts look O.K. but in the pic, not so much!  But I did enjoy the process of making the telescopic card; I think there will be some more in my future.  Thanks Barb for a great video!
