Merry Monday 122

DSCF4649-001

Happy Monday, everyone!  Hope you had a marvelous weekend! Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes for Cassidy!  She enjoyed her day very much!  Now, on to today’s challenge!  Sue is our hostess for Merry Monday this week!  Check out this gorgeous inspiration:

Since I seem to be running at warp speed these days, I chose a very simple Christmas silhouette from Come to Bethlehem for my card, matting it on Brushed Silver and Brushed Gold mats:

I added a wee bit of gold embossing with the star, then added some tiny stars with my gold Painty pen.  It just added a little interest to the sky!

My final touch was a bit of silver ribbon.  Clean, simple, and easy to reproduce!  The design team came up with some stunning samples…be sure to check them all out, and share your Christmas creation with us as well!  Just remember, it’s not that far away!!  There is still time to get a wee bit ahead!

A photo of the birthday girl (I’ll share more as the week goes on!):
