Merry Monday #101 Guest Designer

Happy Monday morning my friends.  Today I am excited to be a Guest Designer over at the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  The challenge is to use only Gray, Red and White on your Christmas card.  
Here is my card:

I used MFT Smooth White and Electric Red, SU Basic Gray & Smokey Slate cardstocks.  I stamped MFT's Wood Plank Background on the Smokey Slate with Basic Gray ink, matted it with the Electric Red and Basic Gray.  I used the new SU Scallop Tag punch to make my tag, rounded the bottom 2 corners and inked around the edges with red ink.  The sentiment from SU More Merry Messages is stamped in Basic Gray ink.  I made the flower with Spellbinders Poinsettia dies, added some pearls to the center and mounted it to the tag with dimensionals.  I added some ribbon from Flourishes to the tag and mounted it with dimensionals also.

Head on over to the Merry Monday Challenge blog and check out all the fabulous cards by the Design Team.  I hope you play along.  You could be a winner and Guest Designer also.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
