Merry Monday July Challenge-Last Week!

We are in our last week of the month long challenge at Merry Monday.  If you have yet to join in on the fun, we would love to see your creation in the gallery!  Anything goes, as long as it is a new Christmas creation!

My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Sunday Sketch & Stamp.  I tweaked the sketch just a tad to work with my paper scraps!  I think my penguin might have looked better on a square card, but I was determined to use up the scrap of snowflake paper!  In case you are wondering about the penguin stamp, he is part of a super cute hostess stamp set that will be released in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book on August 1……only a few days away!

I kept the inside clean, stamping my favorite Christmas sentiment and adding a little pattern paper strip to finish off my card.

D1520 Ornamental Cheer Stamp Set

C1560 Wintry Wishes (available 8/1/13)
