Merry Monday - Season's Greetings


Hi!  I'm back with another Merry Monday challenge card as their Featured Designer for May.  I love this sketch, and the suggestion of lace along those borders (though you could use something else, like punching, or pom poms, or whatever you think of!).  I turned the sketch to a horizontal position and went from there.


Once again, I pulled out some Christmas paper scraps from Stampin' Up!  (I'm LOVIN' using up these pretty scraps!)


I used a Hero Arts sentiment and a clear snowflake stamp from Michael's, bought for a song more than a year ago, on an oval die cut.  How do you like the little punched snowflake cluster?  Had to add my pearls, you know!

Would you like to see what the other Merry Makers have whipped up for you?  Check 'em out!




Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope you are inspired to play with us!

Gorgeous! Love that sketch and since it was hot here yesterday, your card is looking cool and refreshing! Love those little snowflakes, and I'm a pearl lover too! (Been hoarding mine, as they seem to be disappearing from the market?)

Great card! I love how you used the different colors instead of the traditional red and green or blue seems to be a favorite with snow. Love the borders with the lace and then the pearls with the snowflakes. It is all in the details my dear, and once again you have nailed it! Gorgeous!

Just lovely Colleen! Your sheer knotted ribbon and snow flakes on the sentiment oval look fabby. And that sweet little fringy trim is one of my all time favs ;)
