Merry Monday #97 {Holly Jolly Christmas}


Monday is here and that means a brand new week at Merry Monday! This week it is my turn to choose the challenge and I went with a Aqua, Silver & White colour combo that I hope you will enjoy using. If you do not have silver, please feel free to use gray in its place! After all, it is all about getting your Christmas cards done!


I EMBOSSED! Yes, me!!! And I love the shine I achieved on my card. I hope you do too! I used the gorgeous ornament stamp set and die from Stampin' Up. I have wanted this set for such a long time and so I purchased it in December. I had only really used the dies up until now; it was nice to get the stamps inky! The sentiment comes from an old Stampin' Up set that is now retired. And yes, the sentiment is crooked!


Here is the challenge graphic! Come and join us at Merry Monday!
