Merry Mondays #99

Hello friends.  Playing along with Merry Mondays today, and the challenge is to use Brown, Green, Gold, and White or Cream on your card.  Stumped me for a little bit, but then the wheels started turning and this is what I came up with...



I started by stamping the "Script" (SU!) background stamp with Pear Pizazz ink on a white panel that I also embossed with Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle die.  Then I used a pine bough stamp from PSX Stamps and embossed it with clear embossing powder, and then sponged around it with Always Artichoke ink.  The JOY tags are from My Sentiments Exactly and are embossed with gold embossing powder and then hung from the pine bough with gold cord.  I finished with a chocolate brown seam binding ribbon in the upper corner.  This card took a little time, but I really like the way it turned out and am totally loving the colors that I never would have chosen on my own.  Thanks Merry Mondays for the inspiration!!


Make sure you check out all the other great cards and inspiration over at the Merry Monday site here .

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