Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #170

Well the summer vacation high is long gone, my work week last week proved to be long and a little stressful.  The long week and days will continue as we transition through a move back into a renovated building.

Although I was tired it was really hard for my brain to not spin like a top as I got some great news... I applied for and was successful for a new position at work.

On to the card, we have a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge this fine fine Monday Morning. Karren wants us to create a Christmas card with holly on it.

I was not satisfied with any of my holly stamps but finally found some designer paper I could selectively cut out for a holly wreath which is popped up with foam tape. I finished with a sentiment.

Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper recollections, misc die cuts,

The Merry Monday Design team has posted some fabuloul cards over on the challenge blog for inspiration. Stop by, play along and some comments.

Thank for visiting,
