Merry Monday 78


Happy Monday, peeps!  Are you ready for another Christmas inspiration from Lesley and the Merry Monday team?  Here you go:

I saw an interesting challenge at Less is More, which was white on white!  I wish you could see this card in real life, it is so difficult to photograph an all-white card!

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 78 Peaceful Wishes Stampin Up Christmas

I used a retired SU set called Peaceful Wishes; I stamped the pine bough in white craft ink and embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  The sentiment was stamped in Encore silver ink, and then I added a little bird diecut, embellished with a pearl.  It’s so hard to see  but maybe you can detect the sparkle here:


I also added a little scalloped line of silver glimmer paper:


And speaking of Less is More, they chose this card to highlight last week!  Happy news!  Now, let’s see what bird-embellished card you can create this week for the Merry Monday challenge!  Can’t wait to see what you create!  Check all the designs here at Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper!

Cassidy was playing with her foam shapes last week; she had to add windows to her “house”:


as well as some 3D embellishments to her castle!


And lately she really doesn’t want me to take her picture!!  Uh oh!


Enjoy your day!
