Merry Monday Challenge #296!

Welcome to a new challenge week at Merry Monday Challenge! We have a sad announcement to make today. This is our last Merry Monday Challenge so please play along with us this week. Thank you so much to all of you that have played along with our weekly challenge for many, many years. I also want to thank all of my teammates for all of the fun I've had with every single one of you and a big thanks to Lesley for asking me to be on the team back in 2014! 

Nina is our hostess this week and our challenge is to create a rustic Christmas card. Here's my card:

I did a LOT of sponging on this card to make it look rustic. I sponged every single layer. I also used one of my favorite retired stamp sets called Snow Much Fun. The snowman image was so snow much fun to color!
