Merry Monday #241 - Use Red, Green, & White

Hello friends.  We have a color challenge for you this week at Merry Monday, and our hostess Deanne would like to see you use Red, Green, & White on your Christmas cards!


Don't those cherries look so festive all decorated up?!  I love this inspiration photo!  I also love traditional Christmas colors, so this was a FUN challenge for me!!


One of my last Simon Says Stamp purchases had to be this Lined Trees die set that I've seen many out there in blogland using lately...I just love the simple lines of the trees!!  I decided to keep my card pretty CAS because of the tree dies, so didn't add a whole lot else to this card!  I used Gumball Green, Certainly Celery, and Real Red cardstock for the trees, the birds (PTI's In The Meadow), the star tag (PTI's Tiny Tags), and the bottom portion of the card that I also stamped using Penny Black's Footnotes stamp.  The scalloped border is die cut using a SSS Wavy Scallop Stitches die.  I finished with a few stars at the tops of the trees and some bakers twine.

What will you come up with using the red, green, & white color scheme??  We can't wait to see!  If you need more inspiration, check out the FABULOUS cards my teammates created right HERE and then play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)
