Merry Monday #276

Hello friends and happy Monday.  It is time for a new challenge at Merry Monday and this week Colleen would like us to use this photo  as inspiration for our Christmas cards.
As you can see, there are lots of things in the photo to inspire us, but I went with the candles and used this Poinsettias and Candles set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I colored it with Copics and die cut it with MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangles.  I added some Wink of Stella to the tray and the candle flames, although it doesn't show up in the photo.  The sentiment is from the same set and cut with the smallest die from the MFT set.  The DSP is from an older DCWV Christmas Mat Stack, matted with red CS.  I added some red/white Baker's Twine and then mounted the image and sentiment panel with foam tape.

Now hop over to Merry Monday and check out all the fabulous cards by the other designers.  I hope you will join us.

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

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
