Ah, Yes..Christmas in July

I like the jump start i am getting with Christmas cards this year.  I am starting with the challenge at Card Crafter's Circle, "Christmas in July".  I am using the adorable Jesus, which despite the hay, it was easy to cut out..i just colored the hay "outside the lines" and cut it out randomly. 

Here is my card for this challenge:
