Merry Monday July Third week

I have two cards today for the Merry Monday Christmas challenge.  The challenge for July is to make a card each week with any past sketch.

I decided to use the Merry Monday sketch #25.  I really liked the card I made for that challenge. I also decided to make a similar card, just a little different.

Here’s the sketch I used:

Here’s the first card I’ve made, you can click on it to make it larger:

In my previous card, the paper I used turned out to be a little dark for the green Holly.  You can definitely see it here:)  I love the green leaves on white!  I also love how the red gems look:)  On this card, around the Cardinal, I used Stampin’ Up! Basic Pearls.  All supplies will be listed below.

Here’s the second:

On this card, I used white snowflakes on Stampin’ Up! Garden Green cardstock. The image for both cards is from Fred She Said, it’s called, Christmas Bird Series.  The series has the Cardinal, a Chickadee, and winter Robins.  I love this card layout, I think I will use it a few more times;)

Thanks for stopping by today!  I love having people enjoy my cards, I hope that includes you:)  Have a great weekend!
