Merry Monday Challenge Card

Merry Monday 181 (Blue, White with Texture!)

I had fun with my card. I found the perfect DP scrap {don’t know where it came from} and built the rest of the card around it. 


The DP itself features glittery snowflake with a bit of texture, and the plum swirls.  I stamped over the entire background using a Stampin’ Up Yule Bits & Borders.  Next I stamped this present (no identity on this stamp) using Buckaroo Blue classic ink pad by Stampin’ Up.


I embossed the top and ribbon on the gift with sparkle embossing powder, added some gems to the pattern on the present, put on a few touches of plum using TomBow Markers and then I layered it all atop plum cardstock and finally some shimmery wide ribbon trimmed to size and a few loops of very fine silvery blue thread.

It’s a grey grey windy day here today – a nice day to snuggle up and be creative.  I hope whatever your day holds, that you embrace it with joy!  For me, watching the wind pushing the waves about, the birds wheeling and doing ecstatic loop-de-loops and dancing on it’s invisible ups and downs, reminds me that even a day like this is a reminder that it was created for me to enjoy!


The heavens are yours,

the world,

everything -

for YOU created them all.

Psalm 89:11 TLB
