Something New and a Merry Monday

Here's my card for the first 2013 Merry Monday #44 challenge which is to create a Christmas card using the colors of Island Indigo, Pool Party, and Real Red. I used a Lawn Fawn image, coloring with Copics and adding some frosted Stickles for "snow." I mounted on kraft using a long-retired SU! punch to cut the corners. The border was done with a MS Skylands Snowflake punch I got for Christmas. Sentiment by G Studio, embossing from CB snowflake ef, and the ribbon, clip, and mini brads were from my stash. For the final touch I added a dab of liquid applique to the bunny's tiny tail :)

And here's my card for the SNSDC86 which is "something new."  A baby is always something new :) I'm using the digi image Cocoa's Baby Block from SNSS and the image was colored with Copics. I added a SNSS border die, woven with baby blue ribbon and embossed the background with a CB swiss dots ef. For the finishing touch, I added a jewel tag that I wrote "baby" on, and added a snippet of ribbon.

Have a fabulous day today and thanks for stopping by!
