Merry Monday #53

Are you playing along at Merry Monday? At Merry Monday, we have a weekly card challenge with Christmas themed cards.  By creating one Christmas card a week, we are building up our Christmas card stash ahead of the Christmas season.  We would love to see your creations and you will love having your Christmas cards already made when the holiday rush hits!  Here is the sketch for this week-

I was able to make a trip by Archiver's last small feat, since Archiver's is a six hour round trip drive!  I picked up this yummy paper pack by Little Yellow Bicycle.  Winterings is new to me, not sure if it is a new release or not.  It features blues, browns and grey tones.  A perfect addition to my Christmas paper stash.  The decorative shapes on my card were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

All Supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
C1427 I Believe
C1525 Pear & Partridge Set
Clearly Sentimental About Christmas-MFT
Winterings Paper Pad-Little Yellow Bicycle
