Merry Monday #26


My weekly Christmas card for Merry Monday!  I think most of us in the states could use a little snow flurry to cool us off some!  Here is the original sketch design by the ever so talented Lesley-

 
I incorporated a variety of supplies into my card.  Surprisingly all of the colors came together nicely.  Supplies are by Close To My Heart unless noted:

A1115 A Holiday
Sentimental About Christmas by MFT
Winter Park Papers by EP
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
X5759 Pacifica Cardstock
1272 Cranberry Cardstock
Z2116 Cranberry Ink
Z2292 Pacifica Reinker
Felt Flurries by SU
Z1220 Twinkle Brads
Snowflake Embossing Folder by PC
Fishtail Dies by MFT


Design Tip-I added Pacifica Reinker to my layered snowflake on the front of my card to coordinate the colors.

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:
Card Makin' Mamas - Red, White & Blue
Crafty Sentiments  - Red White & Blue

WOW, this is gorgeous! Don't know why I wouldn't have thought to use all the colors (red/white/blue) on a Christmas card as I use them individually. But so glad you did. Love everything about it! So glad you joined us for the Red/White/Blue challenge at Pattie's Creations.
