Merry Monday #139

This is my second post for today.  
Please scroll down to see my The Challenge #21 post.



Welcome back!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Karren challenges us to create a winter themed Christmas card.


This card was totally inspired by my good friend, Maureen.  
Her lesson in The Classroom on StampNation was creating a night sky but making it Clean & Simple.  I encourage you to check out her video on StampNation.

What are you waiting for?

All supplies used on this card are by Papertrey Ink, except for the distress inks to create my night sky.
If you have any questions about any of them, leave me a comment.
Christmas will be here before you know it.
Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.
This will be our last challenge until the new year!  Have a very Merry Christmas!
 Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
