Merry Monday 111

DSCF3359

Hi everyone!  It’s Monday, and that means it’s time to make Christmas cards for Merry Monday!  Here’s our beautiful challenge from Karen for this week:

I went clean and simple for my card today, using a wreath image from Papertrey’s Wreath for All Seasons, stamped and embossed in white:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 111 Christmas Card Stampin

To mimic the pretty ornaments from the inspiration photo, I colored some pearls with Copic markers and added them to the wreath:

I added some retired Certainly Celery ribbon and a sentiment from Amy R Stamps called Handy Christmas Greetings, stamped in Strawberry Slush. The image was stamped on Soft Sky and matted with Coastal Cabana and adhered to a stitched mat from Lil’Inkers. 

I hope you will play along with us using this fabulous photo as your inspiration…it’s so nice to get a head start on all those Christmas cards so you can relax a bit come December!  And be sure to check out all the wonderful samples from the other designers as well!
