Merry Monday #37

This weekend seemed to zoom on by again, it is Monday already :). The rain sure is making up for lost time, I am not complaining though as it is perfect nesting weather. My husband brought me a new Tassimo as an early birthday prezzie and I loved snuggling down with book and sipping a Vanilla Latte.
I have not looked at any count downs to Christmas but it is coming up quickly. Lesley has a new sketch for us for Merry Monday.
I was all over the place with this card, I think I have all the sketch elements just not anywhere they should be.  This new 6x6 Carta Bella paper pad arrived in the mail and I could not wait to make a card.
There are tons of layers to this card, the ovals are 3 layers deep and my new Dee Designs die cut is layered and popped up with foam tape.  I cut out a portion of the DP for the sentiment and added the twine. It was not until I finished the card that I realized I had forgotten the flag so I added a small one after the fact.  The card may be crazy busy but I like how it turned out.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Carta Bella, Dee Designs-Die Cuts, misc twine, Spellbinders dies cuts, embossing folder, misc punch.
