Merry Monday #273 - Use Red and Turquoise

Good morning Merry Monday fans. This week Marcia wants us to create a card in red and turquoise colors.
For my card I used some red and turquoise pattern papers from an older Martha Stewart 12x12 paper pad.   The red check banner and red mat are cut with MFT Piereced Fishtale Flag die and Fishtale 
layer die.  The sentiment is from Recollections Christmas stamp set and  is cut with MFT Stitched Postage Stamp die set.  I cut the mat with the same die and then trimmed the sentiment panel to fit inside the mat.  The flower is made with the smallest die from the Poppystamps Stitched Poinsettia Trio.  I cut it twice, layered it and added pearls to the center.   The flower and sentiment panel are mounted with foam tape.  The white panel is embossed with a Cuttlebug EF.

Now check out all the different ways our designers used red and turquoise on their cards over at Merry Monday.  I hope you will be inspired to play along.

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

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
