Merry Monday #27

Here we are, another Merry Monday🙂 !  I love Merry Monday, I am so going to be done with my Christmas cards this year!  🙂   Here’s this weeks sketch:

Here’s my card, you can click on it to make it larger:

I have to say the photo just doesn’t do justice to this card:(   I used Glimmer Paper, and Shimmery White Cardstock from Stampin’ Up!  This card feels very elegant in person:)  I did NOT color this image myself!  Once again, I have used a pre colored digital image from Fred She Said.  This image is called Christmas Poinsettia Lantern COL & Digi Set.  It comes with white and red Poinsettias, the background writing, and several sentiments.

I printed the image and the background writing on the SU Shimmery White Cardstock.  Behind the black, is the Glimmer Paper.  I love both of these!  I used Stampin’ Up! ribbon with a gem brad from Hobby Lobby.  I’m really pleased with this card, I think I was in a green/red rut!  I do love traditional colors, but it’s nice to do something different now and then;)

Thanks for coming by today!  Be sure to pop over to Merry Monday at Always Playing with Paper, there are plenty more cards to see! 🙂

    A very elegant card. The glimmer silver looks a lot like the aluminium foil I’ve been playing with lately! Your cards are always so beautifully made.
