Merry Monday # 33

Happy Monday everyone, another short post for the new Merry Monday challenge. Lesley has a fantastic sketch for us on her Always Playing with Paper blog.
I spent a good amount of time doing a fall clean around the house this weekend, closets, drawers and such. It felt great but I did not get as much time to craft as I would have liked, I am not complaining though the rain will be here soon enough and I can spend lots of time creating.
When I purchased this stamp I could not wait to see how it would look embossed, I am still not sure.. What do you think?
I used DP from my scrap bin and unfortunately I don't recall who made it. I layered the embossed image added some ribbon and finished with a sentiment.
Supplies: Natural Ivory and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Unknown, Hero Arts-Snowy Winters Night, Recollections-Merry Merry, misc ribbon.

Stop by Always Playing with Paper to see what the Merry Makers have created. We would love for you to play along with us for Merry Monday this week.
