Merry Monday Challenge 187

Hello & Happy Monday!

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week. I have been taking some much needed down time since I have been crazy busy since about September. I have also been working on a 1000 piece puzzle for the last few days that i'm anxious to finish up. I want to frame it and put in the family room eventually. This puzzle is a tough one and i'm only halfway thru! I will conquer it, eventually!

Today, we have a new challenge for you over at Merry Monday! Colleen is our hostess this week so let's get to it!!

I just love plaids! Plaid paper, plaid ribbon...anything plaid, I love!!!

I went in search of some plaid paper to make this card. The Merry Moments DSP Pack has a few sheets of plaid designs in so I pulled out this sheet that I have not touched this holiday season. I love the Mossy Meadow & White plaid in this paper! I punched out a poinsettia flower, stamped my sentiment and finished up within 30 minutes! I love when a card comes together so easily!

Merry Monday Challenge #187 Card:

Stamps: Reason for the Season, PSX
Ink: Real Red, Mossy Meadow
Cardstock: Neenah White, Whisper White, Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Merry Moments DSP
Accessories: Festive Flower Builder Punch, White Pearl, Dimensionals, Tombow Liquid Mono

Hope you will stop by the Merry Monday blog to see what my fellow design team members have created and then play along with us! I'm sure you will be very inspired!!

Before I close this out today I would just like to send out 2- Happy Birthday wishes, one to my dear friend, Deb and the other to Kelsey's boyfriend, Mark! I wish you both a wonderful day!!!

Your poinsettia turned out beautifully and it looks great against the plaid background layer!
