Merry Monday on Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card made using the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge.
The idea behind these sketch challenges are to get a head start on your Christmas cards.

I pulled out my favorite Stampin Up set, "Greeting Card Kids". You all know I love this sweet little Christmas image from this set. 
I stamped the image with black stazon onto some confetti cream card stock and colored with my aqua painter. I used Marina Mist,  Crumb Cake and Riding Hood Red ink. 
The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock and the DSP is from the "Letters to Santa" pack. I matted all the DSP with Early Espresso card stock.

The holly and berries are from the "Bells and Boughs" stamp set. I stamped onto some confetti card stock and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. I cut out and added to my image panel. I used a bit of crystal effects on the berries.
The sentiment is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set.  I added a few basic pearls to finish it off.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and

So pretty, Vivki! I really like how you combined the patterned papers and your coloring is so soft and pretty on the image. :)

Vicki, this is soft and sweet! I like that vintage girl image, and the holly and berries you topped her off with seem to be the perfect finishing touches.

Thanks for playing with us at Merry Mondays!
