Merry Monday #30 - Guest Designer

Today is Monday which means another fantastic challenge over at Always Playing with Paper, with a new Merry Monday sketch #30 design by Lesley Croghan.

Once again, I'm excited to be a guest designer for this week's challenge and would like to thank Lesley for having chosen me as a winner in July giving me this opportunity for today's Challenge #30. Check out the rest of the design team and the beautiful Christmas inspiration.

Here is mine:
I just can't tell you how I adore this paper set: Snow Festival. I'm not even close to using up the pack and already want another one. For the sketch, I decided to flip it and work from there. For this card, I thought and thought to focus on a Christmas card that would be easy to duplicate and so I went for a simple and clean look.

Believe it or not, this card has no stamp sets involved and only DSP, gorgeous Chevron embossing folder, little cardstock (Cherry Cobbler), and Basic Pearls. Basically, there are 2 sheets in the pack that come with 16 (3x3) cute little images like this per sheet, which are all different.

Of course my favorite, Stampin Dimensionals were used under the main square focal point. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating!!
