Merry Monday #66

Once again the weekend has flown by and brings us to Monday morning! I am totally not a morning person and about the only good thing I can say about the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge!  Here is a look at this week's sketch-

For a different look for your not adhere them all the way down on your card.  Before applying adhesive, I roll the end of my banners on my paper piercing tool to give them a little lift.  I then apply adhesive only 3/4s of the way down the banner.  This gives a little added dimension to your card with no pop dots needed!

I used one of the subtle prints in the paper pack to line the inside of my card. 

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
D1520 Ornamental Cheer Stamp Set
Clearly Sentimental About Christmas Stamp Set-MFT
