Merry Monday Challenge Week 16

Hello & Happy Monday!

It's time for another Merry Monday Challenge!
Lesley from over at Always Playing with Paper threw out another terrific sketch this week so that we can get those Christmas cards made! I'm thrilled with the pile of Christmas cards I have made!

Below is her sketch and my sample....

I used an old retired set that I borrowed from my best friend called Nature's Secret. I went thru and picked out some Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP and then stamped my main image with Soft Suede to match. I punched out some Soft Suede & Glitter paper from Micheal's with a Paper Studio Snowflake Punch and layered them together. Then added a White Pearl to the center. I also punched a snowflake with the glitter paper and layered it on the snowflake in my main image. I then popped up the main image with dimensionals and called it done! Love it!

Merry Monday Challenge Week #16 Card:

Stamps: Nature's Secret (retired)
Ink: Soft Suede
Cardtsock: Soft Suede, Neenah White, Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP, Glitter Paper from Micheal's
Accessories: The Paper Studio Snowflake Punch, SU Basic Pearls, Dimensionals, Scor Tape

I hope you can find some time to play along this week over at Merry Mondays!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

I'm really liking the non-traditional colors you used for this card! I love all the snowflakes & pearl accents! Pretty!

I love this neutral card with the pretty sparkly snowflake atop the large printed one. Thanks for your lovely comment. I would have added both, but Mr. Linky doesn't allow it.
