Merry Monday #51

I'm thrilled to be guest designing for the Merry Monday #51 challenge after my card was chosen for top honors last week! Woot! This week Lesley has given us a tic-tac-toe challenge, and I've used the top row straight across to make my card.

My card uses red, dry embossing, and ribbon. I used a SU! tulip frame ef and added a MB pine needle die border under the ribbon. The SU! sentiment was heat embossed with winter wonderland ep  and that's pretty much all there was to making this card.

Be sure to visit the Merry Monday card makers and see what they've created to inspire you to start making your Christmas cards early this year!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a wonderful and merry Monday!
