Merry Monday Challenge #2.....

Hi Everyone!

In yesterday's post I mentioned that I didn't have the time to make any Christmas cards last year. Well, my dear blogging friend, Lesley, commented that I should check out her blog for her latest challenge. The challenge is called "Merry Monday" and it's a fun challenge for you to create one Christmas card for your stash each week. What a great idea!!

Here's Lesley's sketch -



And here's what I came up with -


and a closer view -



(Ooops! Please excuse the photo quality - I just noticed that the camera lense must need a good clean :)

I really enjoyed making this card! The ornaments on the image panel have been stamped and then clear embossed to give them a lovely, glossy shine and some texture.  I didn't have a Christmas sentiment stamp to fit the space, so I used a rub on that I had in my stash. The red Glimmer Paper was cut with the Two Tags die and then popped up on dimensionals.

I love reading your comments! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
