Merry Monday....Merry Christmas

Happy Monday peeps!!!

I am thrilled to announce that Lesley from Always Playing with Paper has asked me to join the Merry Monday design team for 2013.

If you not familiar with this challenge, the idea is to make a Christmas card each week,so you will have them all done come Christmas. It will definitely be a challenge for me to make Christmas type cards in the summer, I a such a seasonal stamper,  but I am up for it!

So onto this challenge:

Although our weekly challenges are finished for 2012, we have decided to have a 2 week "Any Past Sketch" Challenge here at Merry Monday! You are welcome to use any of the past Merry Monday Sketches.

I am using sketch number #25
I love a tent topper card and i had not made one it ages so this was a good opportunity.
i went with a non-traditional color pallet for my
Christmas card, i used a fave retired Stampin Up color, Concord Crush along with some Wisteria Wonder and Silver Glimmer paper.
I used the Snow Flurries die for my big ol' layered snowflake.

I used the Petite Pairs stamp set for the little "Merry Christmas" and added a large pearl to the center.
The DSP is from a retired pack, whose name eludes me at this moment, and I used some satin whisper white ribbon across the bottom.
Be sure and head over to Lesley's Blog to see what the rest of the Merry Makers did with this challenge.

Congratulations on joining the Merry Monday team! I'm a seasonal stamper too, so I understand where you're coming from! I think I'll try to stretch myself and participate more when it's not christmas time. You've created a beautiful snowflake card here. I like the sketch you chose and the colors you used!
