Merry Monday #58

Wow, I have a bunch of info this week regarding challenges where you can win prizes! 🙂  Be sure to scroll all the way to the end for this exciting info! 🙂

First, I’d like to show you the sketch this week for Merry Monday #58:

MM New Look Sketches-003Now for my card, you can click on it to make it larger:

Half-fold Card1I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a little bored with all these banners.  I decided to do something a little different and used gems.  I had a terrible time trying to make them look straight with embossing under them:(  I had a number of steps, but still pretty simply made😉

I used Stampin’ Up! supplies except where noted.   Of course my first note would be my beautiful pre-colored digital image from Fred She Said.  This image is called, Winter Emma & The Chickadee.  She comes in 5 different colors.  You can get the uncolored version here.

The back layer is Garden Green, then Cherry Cobbler, white with SU embossing folder Petals A Plenty, more Garden Green and a tiny bit of Cherry Cobbler.  The little stamp comes from the Tags til Christmas set, cut out with the Stampin’ Up! Small Oval Punch.  I did use a small Spellbinders oval for the Cherry Cobbler behind it.  The gems are just some misc. ones hanging around.  On Emma’s coat, I used SU Dazzling Details to add some sparkle.

Really it wasn’t that hard to put together, once I decided what I wanted to do;)

Now, if you’d like to know where there are some challenges where you can win Fred She Said and other prizes, I have a few places for you to visit:

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    A lovely card. I know what you mean about attaching things to embossing – not always as easy as it looks!
