Merry Monday #45 - Merry Christmas

 

Here is my card for this week's Merry Monday #45 sketch challenge.  The challenge is to make a Christmas Card each week.  I missed last week's color challenge but hope to do the challenge each week to have a good supply of Christmas cards done before Christmas this year.  My friend came over today and we made these cards and a Valentine card. Such fun to get together and stamp and play with new goodies.

My card base is SU Always Artichoke, as well as the mats.  The paper is from DCWV Heirloom Christmas Stack.  It has some beautiful papers in it.  The leaves and poinsettias are shiny, but it doesn't show up in the photo.  I used the Spellbinders poinsetia die with SU Cherry Cobbler CS and mounted it on a SU Verry Vanilla Circle and Always Artichoke scallop circle cut with Spellbinders dies.   I added Studio G Rhinestones to the cneter and the whole panel is mounted with foam tape to the base.  The sentiment is from SU More Merry Messages stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla banner and matted with Always Artichoke.  The red button is from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by.  Comments are greatly appreciated.
