Merry Monday 70


Hey, peeps!  It’s Monday---wow, the weekend went fast, didn’t it?  Popping in quickly for the latest Merry Monday sketch:

One of these weeks I am going to make a non-vintage Christmas card—I promise!  I just have so many vintage-themed images, I can’t stop!  This one has very little stamping:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 70 Christmas

I found some old Basic Grey paper already trimmed to size, so I went in search of something to complement it.  I came up with this sticker but it was a wee bit too small, so I added an oval and scallop mat.  The image is faint; here’s a better look; I added some antique glitter around the edge:


I used some Mellow Moss and Cherry Cobbler cardstocks, stamping a pine branch first on the MM piece.  After stamping my sentiment and adding some seam binding, I thought it still looked a little bare, so I added a diecut bell in Brushed Gold cardstock:


That’s better!  How about you?  Have you been participating in the Merry Monday challenges?  There’s still time to get a head start on your Christmas card!  Use the sketch and show us your creation!  You can find it all on Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper!  And be sure to check out the amazing samples from her talented design team as well!
