Merry Monday #159


 Hi everyone!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Debbie challenges us to create a Christmas card with a non-evergreen tree(s).


I recently picked up this Mini scenery stamp by Winnie and Walter and knew right away I wanted to use it.  I have been playing with my new ombre ink pads and thought the grey to black would look perfect with this stamp.  I LOVE how it turned out.  I added the red bird and sentiment for a pop of color.

Adding this to The Glory of Christmas Challenge:  Bird(s) or anything goes as long as it's Christmas & Addicted to CAS: Birds.

  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog. I hope you will join us!


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps:  Into the Woods (Winnie & Walter)
Paper:  Real Red, Whisper White (SU)
