Merry Monday #168


Hi everyone!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Deanne challenges us to create a Christmas card using Pastel colors.


To get the color behind my snowflakes, I used the back side of the stamp from the stamp set Sparkle & Shine by Clearly Whimsy stamps.  The sentiment is also from that set.  I used the dot chevron stencil by Simon Says Stamp to add texture to the card base with embossing paste.  I added a rhinestone to the center of each snowflake to finish it off.

 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:  Sparkle & Shine (Clearly Whimsy)
Ink:  Early Espresso, Aqua Mist, Pink Pirouette & Pistachio Pudding (SU)
Paper:  White, Early Espresso
Accessories:  Rhinestone, Dot chevron stencil (SSS), Translucent embossing paste
