Merry Monday Challenge #133

Hello & Happy Monday!

Here we are at the first Monday of November. 
The time is just flying by and before long it will be Christmastime! 

Today, we have a new challenge over at Merry Monday. Nina is our hostess and she is asking for rustic with creams, tans & browns.

I pulled out some old DSP from SU called Christmas Cocoa DSP and combined it with a new stamp set called Cheerful Tags. I've just got this stamp set last week and I have been using it left & right on my stuff for the Christmas shows! Love it!  I added a button to my cute tag and some banners at the top of my card that were embossed with the SU Snow Burst EF. I stamped a snowflake from the same stamp set, punched it out with a 1 1/4 circle punch and placed it at the top of my banners with a dimensional. I really like these colors together!

Merry Monday Challenge #133 Card:

Stamps: Cheerful Tags, Christmas Messages (inside)
Ink: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Christmas Cocoa DSP
Accessories: Note Tag Punch. Circle Punches, Banner Framelits, Button, Linen Thread, Glue Dot, Pearls, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape

Hope you will stop by the Merry Monday blog to see what the other's have created this week! We also hope you'll play along!

Well, that's all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!

That DSP is perfect for this challenge, Wendy - I've still got some of that and never thought to pull it out for this challenge! Love all the textures and patterns you've got working so well together in this card.
