Merry Monday #101 {Red, Grey and White}


Happy Merry Monday! We had such an amazing "celebration" week with our 100th challenge! Thanks to everyone who took some time celebrate with us! Are you ready for a fresh, new color combo??

 

For my card this week, I dug out some Papertrey Ink and Lil' Inker products and got to work on a CAS design:


I used Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White card stock and Basic Grey ink. The holly stamp is called "Mistletoe and Holly" and the sentiment is from "Signature Christmas" both from PI. The white panel was cut out using my Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangular die then popped up using foam squares. The berries were cut with the holly die from Papertrey Ink.

I love, love, love how this card turned out - definitely one I will mass produce closer to Christmas! 


I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Christmas Card Challenges - Anything Goes
Completely Christmas - Anything Goes
Jingle Belles - Holly and Ivy
Winter Wonderland - Use lots of red

Please be sure to hop on over to the Merry Monday Challenge blog HERE and see what all the Merry Makers have for you to drool over....they rocked this color combo outta the park! Link up your project for us and we'll be by to leave you some love! Happy crafting!
