Merry Monday Challenge #213!

Happy Monday! And welcome to a new challenge for a new week at Merry Monday. I am the hostess for this week and my challenge is to use the above photo as inspiration for you Christmas card. I decided to use the colors and the stars from the photo as inspiration for today's card:

I love how the swirly image looks in Smoky Slate Ink against the Real Red Cardstock star. I added lots and lots of Rhinestone Jewels too. You like?

I hope you plan on joining us at Merry Monday this week. We would all love to see what you create using the inspiration photo!

Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Star Of Light
  • Inks: Smoky Slate, Real Red
  • Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Real Red, Whisper White
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels
  • Tools: Stampin' Dimensionals, Starlight Thinlits Dies

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
