Merry Monday #48



I made this card for the Merry Monday #48 color challenge.  Boy, was it different making a Christmas card with these colors. 

I found a new challenge site http://stilladdinktive.blogspot.com/  and used their sketch challenge for my card.  You can use the sketch & colors or either one, so I chose the sketch and the colors from the Merry Monday challenge.  I rotated the sketch so I could add the ornament for the oval element, like it is hanging from the pine branches.

All supplies are from Stampin Up (except the Martha Stewart pearl).  I used Whisper White & Basic Gray CS and Pumpkin Pie DSP.   I cut 2 Top Note die-cuts from Basic Gray & WW, cutting the white one around the dotted edge.  I used the Greetings of The Season for my sentiment and  Watercolor Winter for the pine branches, stamped in Basic Gray ink.  I stamped the ornament from Ornament Keepsakes in Marina Mist ink and cut it out, mounted it with foam dimensionals over the Marina Mist Taffeta ribbon, then added a MS pearl to the center.

Thanks for stopping by.  Comments are greatly appreciated.
