Merry Monday #30!

Happy Monday everyone! Want a great way to start off a new week today? Why not join us at Merry Monday for our new weekly challenge? We have a brand new sketch this week.......don't forget, your submission must be Christmas-y! Here is the sketch for this week:

And my card:

I really went away from the traditional Christmas colors with this one. I just love how the Pretty In Pink Cardstock and the Rich Razzleberry DSP look against a little splash of Early Espresso. I even colored my Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon in Early Espresso Ink to match my card. Here's a close-up of the colored image:

I embossed my DSP panel with the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Folder and lightly sanded the embossing. I also added Dazzling Details in all the little swirly's in the embossing. The stamped image also has some of the Dazzling Details in the leaves and the flowers were colored with my Blender Pen and my inks!

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Pretty In Pink, Whisper White, Early Espresso
  • DSP: Brights Paper Pack
  • Inks: Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry, Pretty In Pink
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Labels Collection Framelits, Word Window Punch, Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Folder, Blender Pen, Stampin' Dimensionals
