Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #280

We have a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge, Kelly is our hostess and her challenge is to Create a Christmas card using the inspiration photo.

What do you see here, what is your inspiration?

I used hanging decorations, stars and greenery to tap into my creativity. 

My card was quick and simple as I let the paper do all the work. The tree was a panel in my paper pad, I layered it with other patterns from the same book. The sentiment was cut from a piece of scrap and popped up with foam tape. 

I added Wink of Stella to the star for shimmer.

Supplies: Cream cardstock, Designer Paper - Simple Stories.

Come play along with the challenge, and stop by the Merry Monday blog to take a look at all the wonderful cards created by the design team.
