Merry Monday #116


Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week LeAnne challenges us to use shades of green and white on our Christmas card.


I was drawn to the wood grain in the photo so I wanted to incorporate that onto my card.  I stamped Pear Pizzaz ink onto Pear Pizzaz cardstock for a slight contrast of green.  My sentiment from Papertrey Ink is stamped using Hero Arts silver shadow ink.  I am also using the sketch over at Lesley's The Challenge #10.


The charm takes the place of the banner in the sketch.  :)

   I hope you will join us this week to get a head start on your Christmas cards for 2014.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
