Merry Monday Challenge Week #27

Hello & Happy Monday!
Hope everyone had a terrific weekend!

Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper is back from her much needed vacation and has rounded up the Merry Makers for a brand new sketch this week! This is also the first sketch of August! I scratch my head and think, we are in August, already! WOW, time is just flying by and the holidays will be here before you know it so get out those crafting supplies and let's get those cards made!!

Here is the sketch and my samples.....




Merry Monday Challenge Week #27 Card:

Stamps: Bright Hopes
Ink: Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock: Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Neenah White, Frostwood Lodge DSP, Silver Glitter Paper
Accessories: Oval Nestibilities, Holly & Ribbons EF, MS Bow Punch, SU Scallop Edge Border Punch, Clear Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Scor Tape

I loved this sketch as soon as I saw it but it took me a bit to get it to where I was happy with it! This so far might just be one of my favorite holiday cards this year!

Well, that is all for me today!
I hope that you will stop by Always Playing With Paper and see what the other Merry Maker's have created and play along with us this week! Just remember, the holidays will be here before ya know it!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Great card for the sketch. I really like how you used a round stamp on the oval die, and made it all work with the words across the bottom. Well done!
cheers, Karen
