Merry Monday #50

Happy Saturday friends!  I am on a roll with my Christmas cards and I thank Lesley over at Always Playing with Paper for her great Merry Monday Christmas card challenges.  The theme challenge this week was to make an Elegant Christmas card.  I am not sure my card is considered Elegant but I find the sentiment elegant.  :)



I was totally inspired by my sweet friend Catherine Pooler.  I love her KISS card series, she made this card.  LOVE it!  Thank you for the inspiration Catherine.  :)  Not sure if you can tell but the inside of the ornament is embossed with Pool party embossing powder.  Another touch of elegance.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Festival of prints DSP
Ink:  Early Espresso, Versamark
Stamps:  Ornament Keepsakes, More Merry Messages
Accessories:  Ornament framelits, Pool Party Embossing powder, rhinestone, 1 3/4" circle punch
