Merry Monday #65

My Christmas card stash is slowly but surely growing!  I am about to move my completed cards to another box to accommodate all of them!  If you have yet to start playing with us at Merry is the time to get started!  The holiday season will be here before you know it!  Lesley has created another awesome sketch for us this week.  I decided to flip the sketch for my card design.  Here is the original sketch for you to play with-

My card was created with the Christmas Day paper pad by Carta Bella.  I love the rustic colors in the paper pack.  The pack also had some lightly textured paper which was perfect for my inside sentiment.  I like the subtle pattern vs just having plain cardstock to write on.  The pack had coordinating brads as well, which I used on the front of the card.
