Merry Monday #59

After taking a week off, we are back at Merry Monday!  Lesley has another awesome sketch for us this week.  I love the combination of the oval shape with the added banner.

My oval shapes were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I then embossed the top panel with a distressed brick background.  I popped up my stocking, added a rick rack hanger and fun flock for added texture.  A little added bling completes the card!

I carried the monochromatic theme to the inside of the card.  The large sentiment is from MFT Stamps.

  1. I saw your card on the Merry Monday challenge post this morning and was instantly drawn to that brick embossing! It's so perfect with your stocking. Love your blues and the matching inside of the card (I never like to do the insides, but it really does make them so much more special). Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
