Merry Monday Card Challenge #99

It is Monday and that means we have a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge for you, this week we would like you to Use Chocolate Brown, Green, Gold and White or Cream on your Christmas Card.

 
I used a simple layout for my card, I heat embossed the sentiment in brown then popped it up with foam tape. The top part of the card is  a DP that is almost like a sage green, the bottom is cream and gold. I tried every angle to get that effect of the gold but the cameras (yes two of them) just
would not pick it up. I added a little bit of cream ribbon with gold trim and finished with some brown pearls.
 
 
Stop by the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge blog to see all the wonderful creations by my fellow Merry Makes and we would love for you to play along.

Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper-Kaiser Craft, Christmas Calligraphy, ribbon and pearls.

Cheers,
Nina

  18. This is a great card. I tend to shy away from those repeating multi-word stamps but I see how they make a great focal point. The colors and patterns in your card are fab!
