Merry Monday 66


Happy Monday, peeps!  Did you have a good weekend?  Lesley has an intriguing Merry Monday sketch for us today:

I love the sketch…I am just not sure my interpretation of it is the best!  Anyway, here you go:


I used some Cosmo Cricket papers that had a retro feel to them, pairing them with a Blushing Bride banner and sentiment, because this is also for the Festive Friday challenge, which is a vintage theme:

I had some cool Tim Holtz papers with old Christmas ornaments on them but I couldn’t make them work with the sketch!  So I went for the colors and baubles!!!  I embossed my center banner and added some Copic-colored pearls:


I really love this effect….maybe it’s the greens that don’t match?  Oh well!  The thought behind the card is really what matters, right?  I hope you’ll play along with this sketch and share your creation with us at Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper!  You’ll be glad you added another card to your holiday stash!

Cassidy got to help me make some cookies this week:


And of course, every little helper gets to lick the spoon:
