Merry Monday July Challenge

Hello & Happy Monday!

It's Monday again and that means it's time for another Merry Monday sketch from Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper! This month she is doing something a little different. She is taking some time off from blogging to get some much needed R&R but highly encourages everyone to still participate and get those Christmas cards made! The challenge is to go back thru the past Merry Monday sketches and pick one a week and make another card. At the end of July she will pick 4 winners which will become Guest Designers in the future. Hope you will stop on over to her blog and check out the fabulous cards made by the other Merry Markers and play along with us this week/month! 

So, for my card this week I chose a sketch from a few weeks ago, sketch #25. It was the tent topper card but I did not make mine that way originally. This time I made it into a tent topper card.





I seen this ribbon wreath done in the last few years and I was always intimidated by making one thinking they would be hard! I was determined to finally make my own ribbon wreath and at first it was a little tricky but I did it!!! I thought about this sketch for a few days and knew that I wanted to make the ribbon wreath. I could picture it in the white with some gold beads & a gold bow. It was not hard at all and I love the outcome! I will be making more of these in the future! :)


Merry Monday Challenge (Week #25 Sketch):

Stamps: Petite Pairs (sentiment)
Ink: Memento Black
Cardstock: PTI White, Brushed Metallic Gold
Accessories: 1/4 White Grosgrain, Circle & Lacey Circle Nestibilties, Gold Bead, Gold Ribbon, Multi Mono Liquid Glue, Hot Glue Gun, Scor Tape


Well, that is all for me today!
Hope you can find some time to play along this week and let's get those Christmas cards made! It might be 100 degrees out now but Christmas will be here before you know it!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Wendy - the wreath you've created is fabulous! It looks really tricky and I don't think I could manage it. You've created a very elegant Christmas card.
