Monday Monday...

I combined two challenges for this one card. The Mojo Monday sketch 
challenge and the Merry Monday Christmas  card theme challenge. This
week the theme is to include a gift or present on your card.
I instantly thought of the song by the Mamas and the Papas called
Monday Monday and I've been singing it ALL night - I do like that song.

I'm not a fan of this card and I wasn't going to show it but in the end I decided to.
There are things I would change about it but the reason I do these challenges
is to take myself out of my comfort zone and this one did just that. It's all
that dsp - and those bows - they don't work for me - I probably will change it
up some but for now - here it is. 

card stock: whisper white, early espresso
dsp: season of style
stamp set: Christmas Messages
big shot: circle framelits
embellishments: cherry cobbler baker's twine,
     cherry cobber quilted satin ribbon

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!

Thanks for your comment. I agree about creating outside our comfort zone but my style has now changed since doing challenges, especially CAS. I like that you used a sketch and I think it works well with your choice of paper.
