Merry Monday #269

Hello friends and happy Monday.  It is time for a new challenge at Merry Monday and this week Debbie has a color challenge for us.  She wants us to use 3 colors from the inspiration photo.
I am using red, light green and dark green on my card.
I tried several different shots but couldn't get the lighting right on my card, it may be the gold foil letters throwing the lighting off.  It is actually just a little darker IRL.  The green paper is from SU Be Merry Christmas paper and the red is from Love Nicole Seasons Greetings 6x6 pad.  The wreath is from a Sizzix Tim Holtz set, Happiest Holidays.  It has a stamp, 2 dies and embossing folder.  I fussy cut the center of the wreath as it had a sentiment in the middle and I didn't want that.  I colored the wreath and ribbon with Promarkers.  The J and Y are from SU Large Letters Framelits dies cut from gold foil paper and mounted with foam tape.  The wreath is also mounted with foam tape.  The banners are cut with MFT Fishtail Flags Stax dies.

Now don't forget to check out all the fabulous inspiration by the designers over at Merry Monday.  I hope you will join us.

I am also linking up with Muse: Christmas Visions  - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
