Merry Monday Challenge #5



I didn't think I would get a card made in time to enter this challenge as every day this week seemed to be taken up with something more important - like bookwork for the accountant. I always leave it until the last minute to do!! I wanted to use a couple of my new goodies so here they are!

As you can see, there is no stamping at all on this card - I did use ink to sponge around edges etc but nothing more! This is for Lesley's # 5 Merry Monday challenge- of course a Christmas card and this sketch!

Card: SU Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Deck the Halls DSP, Bazzill greens
Ink: SU Soft Suede, Early Espresso
Other: Nestabilities Fleur de Lis Squares, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Tim Holtz die cuts, SU lace and ribbon and rhinestones. Oh and a tiny SU pearl for the deer's eye!
