Merry Monday #113

Where did the time go today? I had planned to have
this posted by 9am - just one of those days - I'm so far 
behind that I'm first in line again. 

My card for you today was made for another fantastic
challenge over at Merry Monday. This week the challenge
is to use pink, white and silver on your card.

When I first saw the colors I thought that it would take
me a while to come up with something - they're not
my usual go-to colors for Christmas. I really surprised
myself when I sat down to make this and it literally
came together in minutes.


The Merry & Bright stamp set from Avery Elle is one of 
my favorite Christmas stamps that I own. 


I really like this one and think I may just have to 
make a few more! I think this would make a nice
gift set - besides pink, it would look good with blue or
green and of course red.

If you haven't checked out the Merry Monday challenges
yet, you really should - they are fantastic!!

supplies:
card stock: whisper white, pink pirouette
stamp set: Merry & Bright (Avery Elle)
ink: strawberry slush, versa mark
silver embossing powder
big shot: pretty print EF, decorative dots EF, circles framelits
embellishments: silver 1/8" ribbon


Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!!
