Merry Monday #70

We are back with a new sketch this week at Merry Monday.  After going through various papers and color schemes, I ended up with a rather non-traditional Christmas card.  I love the simplicity of it though!  Here is the original sketch for your take-

This Merry Christmas sentiment from the Ornamental Cheer stamp set has earned it's self a permanent spot on my desk!  I am a minor crisis when I could not locate the set for this card, then I saw the sentiment just sitting there waiting to be inked!  Not sure where the rest of the set has taken off to, probably out searching for a new home where it will get inked....but my sentiment was waiting for me!  Love this font!

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
D1483 Glory to God
D1520 Ornamental Cheer
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
X5642 Cocoa Cardstock
Z2503 Basics Pigment Ink
