Merry Monday #61

If you have been playing along with us every week atMerry Monday, you should be well on your to having a Christmas card stash built up!  If you have to start your Christmas cards, now is a great time to come join us at Merry Monday.  Complete one Christmas card a week and have your cards completed before the holiday rush!  Lesley makes creating your Christmas cards super easy with her awesome weekly sketches!  Here is the sketch for this week-

While the design element on the sketch is a snowflake, I took the liberty of flipping the sketch and going with a Santa theme.  My card is super simple.  I utilized a great piece of pattern paper by Carta Bella and added the stamped sentiment.  For the inside,  I stamped my pattern border and then added Liquid Pearls to the centers for a little bling!
