Merry Monday


My card is for the Merry Monday #35 challenge.
I used dsp from the MME Christmas paper pad for this. Then I stamped the ornament image from the SU! Delightful Decorations stamp set with Versamark, and embossed it with Winter Wonderland ep. I used the SU! ornament punch to cut it out and mounted it on a labels 18 die from SB, adding some silver cording for the bow. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was colored with markers before stamping.

I'm also entering this card in the Dynamic Duos #22 challenge to use Cherry Cobbler and my choice of another color. That color was obviously dark green :)



While I had these papers out, I made a card for the SNSDC73 challenge "It's Hip to be Square." In other words, make a square card. I used a SNSS Christmas Candle digi image and colored it with Copics, adding some Christmas red stickles here and there just for interest. The sentiment was done with an Inkadinkado stamper.

Thanks so much for the little visit today - I hope your Monday is going well :)
