Merry Christmas for Merry Monday

This is my first Christmas card for 2014.  I am joining in the Merry Monday #90 Christmas Challenge (use ribbon or twine) on their new blog (click on the link and check it out) and also Christmas Cards All Year Long - Anything Goes.  I love these challenges that give me the opportunity to make Christmas cards all year long and not be rushed in December, plus I love making Christmas cards.


 
The card base and image panel are MFT Smooth White CS.  The mat is SU Cherry Cobbler and the DSP is from MME Mistletoe Magic 6x6 pad.  The sentiment and image are from Flourishes' Christmas Candles stamped in Mememto Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored the image with Prismacolor  Pencils and Oderless Mineral Spirits.  The panel is cut with Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight and mounted with foam tape.  The Christmas Ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
 
ETA: I am also entering my card in Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for January - Anything Goes.
 

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
