Merry Monday #83


Good morning friends.  Playing along with Merry Monday's this week and the challenge is to use stripes, red, chocolate, and stars or hearts.  Once again the chocolate throws me for a loop, as I don't really think of browns being a Christmas color.  However, I have to admit that it is growing on me a little after seeing some of the fabulous cards by the designers and other bloggers.  You can take a look at them here.  So after mulling it over for awhile, I decided to use SU!'s "Heart of Christmas" stamp in Soft Suede (milk chocolate!) to get me started and this is what I came up with:


I apologize for the picture quality, but IRL the card is quite shimmery between the gold cs stars and the iridescent gold Glimmer Mist.  (enlarging the picture helps a little bit!)  I used a Darice embossing folder with Cherry Cobbler cs for my stripes and the trees are from SU!'s "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set.  I added a small seam binding ribbon (milk chocolate) from The Craft Spot and a little star tag from PTI.  The little stars on the trees are also a PTI die (Star Gazer). 




Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :0)
