Merry Monday Challenge #160

Hello & Happy Monday!

Happy Memorial Day to all my US friends & family! 
Since we are having a 3 day weekend I totally forgot that it was Monday and time to get the blog updated for Merry Monday
My apologies for being a bit late this morning......

Karren has a terrific challenge for us this week so I hope you'll all play along!

As soon as I seen the challenge to use newspaper I knew what I was going to make!

I purchased this paper from Amuse a few years ago. The writing on it is from Twas the Night Before Christmas story. I never even opened it until Karren's challenge. The red striped paper is also from Amuse called Candy Cane Stripe. I thought the 2 papers went beautifully together! I used an older Stampin Up set with this called Welcome Christmas. It reminds me of days gone by when we were little kids and again I thought it went beautifully with the Amuse papers! I finished my card up with adding some red stitched grosgrain ribbon and a red rhinestone and placed everything onto a Real Red cardbase. Hope you like my creation made with newsprint! I thought Karren's challenge was a fun one! Stop by the Merry Monday blog to see what the other ladies created this week! They really made some neat cards for inspiration!!
