Merry Monday #24

I love that I am making Christmas cards in June :), my sister always asks how I get in the spirit but you know I don't think my brain is in Christmas mode but just in the mood to create cards.

With that said it is time for a new Merry Monday challenge and  Lesley had another fantastic sketch for us.

I was going for some funky looking paper this week and found it in my Basic Grey stash, I used some spellbinder dies then threaded gold twine through the edges.

Supplies: Natural Ivory and green cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey, Verve-Joy, Spellbinders misc green ribbon and gold twine, gold pearls Recollections.

Stop by Lesley's blog to see what the design team members have created for inspiration and join us for this weeks challenge.
