Merry Monday....Joys of the Season

Merry Monday Peeps!!!
Today Lesley at Always Playing with Paper has a fun new sketch for us:

I pulled out my Stampin Up "Winter Memories" stamp set  to use this sled and cardinal stamp.
I stamped the image onto some confetti cream card stock with black stazon and colored using my aqua painter and ink pads.
The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler and then a layer of cream and then the DSP is from the "Be of Good Cheer" paper pack.

The sentiment is from a small Hero Arts set and is stamped with black stazon and punched out with my 1-3/8 inch punch and I used my 1-1/2 inch punch and cherry cobbler to mat the circle.
I used some ribbon for my flag elements from the sketch, I used some vanilla velvet ribbon (retired) and some cherry cobbler scallop ribbon.
I pierced all around the main image and colored a few small pearls with a copic marker to add to the wreath,
I finished it up with more pearls in the corners. 

Now be sure and hop on over to Lesley's Blog to see what the rest of the Merry makers 
did with this great sketch.
Thanks for stopping by today and

Hope to play along this week...I've sort of fallen off the Christmas to pick up my socks and get back on!

Thanks for the inspiration!
