Merry Monday

I have the pleasure and honor of being a guest designer at
the Merry Monday challenge blog this week. The first challenge 
I ever played along with was one at Merry Monday. I loved it and
still do to this day. They have a fantastic DT that is always 
inspiring and the challenges are always fun to do.
This one was no exception.




I covered some retired wooden snowflakes from Stampin' Up with
some whisper white ink, pressed them into a pile of chunky
white Deep Impression embossing enamel and then heat set them.
I love how they turned out.
It's hard to see in the photo but the background is embossed with
the decorative dots embossing folder. Looks like falling snow.

Now, check out the inspiration photo...



...and click here to check out the DT's cards. I hope you'll join us in
the challenge too. I look forward to seeing your cards in the 
gallery.

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
