Merry Monday #37

Hello everyone!  So excited to announce that I have been asked to be on the Design Team at Merry Monday!  I love playing along with Lesley’s sketches every week and can’t wait to make the rounds to see your creations!  Here is a look at this week’s sketch.

I incorporated a mix of old and new supplies to make my card. My sentiment on the front of my card is from the current October Stamp of the Month, Very Merry Christmas.   I pulled out my favorite set from last year, Holiday Magic for my sleigh image.  I distressed the edges of my paper to give my card more of a vintage feel.  I stamped the musical background in tone on tone for a subtle image.

I love the Merry Christmas sentiment from Ornamental Cheer.  It is such a classic font, it seems to work great for all of my cards.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

S1110 Holiday Magic

S1210 Very Merry Christmas

D1520 Ornamental Cheer

D1477 Universal Backgrounds

X7141B Elemental Paper Pack
