Merry Monday Sketch Challenge


Merry Monday Peeps!
It is time for a new Merry Monday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the fab sketch Lesley has for us this week:


I pulled out my Poinsettia Nestabilties to make my Merry Monday card.
I got this as a gift last Christmas and I hadn't used them yet so it was about time huh?
I used Cherry Cobbler card stock along with some always artichoke for the leaves.
The fern-y like foliage around the outside of the poinsettia is made with a MS punch.


The sentiment comes from the Stampin Up "Many Merry Messages" stamp set, now retired. The DSP is also from a retired pack. I used confetti cream card stock for the base of the card.  I added an antique brad to the sentiment piece and a few small pearls to the center of the flower.

Be sure and hop on over to Lesley's Blog to see what the Merry Monday Makers did with this sketch!
Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Vicki
