Merry Monday #66

Hi friends.  I am sharing my card for this week's Merry Monday Challenge over on Lesley's blog.  I love this challenge, it is helping me build up my Christmas card stash for this year.

Here is my card:



I used the same technique as last week's card.  It is such a fun technique.  I also wanted to thank the DT for choosing my card last week as Honorable mention.  :)

For my card I decided to flip the sketch use trees as my "banners".

Here is the sketch:


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Cardstock:  Lucky Limeade, Whisper White & Crumb cake
Ink:  Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, True black (PTI)
Stamps:  Evergreen & Petite Pairs (SU!)
Accessories:  Tilted banner dies (SSS), white ribbon

  3. BRILLIANT take on the sketch and such a fabulous design! LOVE the shadow stamping (I still haven't tried it), and I love that you did the trees in two different shades of green. How did you do the snow? I got up close and couldn't tell if it was ink, torn paper, or what. I LOVE it! And congrats on the HM!!
