Merry Monday Guest

Last Monday I was so excited to see that my Christmas moose card:
was chosen as the Top Pick for the Merry Monday challenge, and that meant I was asked to be the Guest Designer for this weeks Merry Monday challenge. As someone who adores Christmas and makes Christmas cards throughout the year I'm ecstatic at the chance to join in as Guest Designer!

Lesley has a great sketch for us this week and here is my take on it. The Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details was still wet when I took the photo and now that its dry it looks really nice, it gives the background paper a nice 'pop'. I also added some clear Dazzling Details to some of the snowflakes on the the main image panel.

I did paper piercing around the edges to help define the sections and give the eye a little something extra to take in and used a white gel pen to add some faux stitching.

Head on over to the Merry Monday challenge and check out the great inspiration from the design team and make sure you play along! Only 260 days until Christmas!

I'd like to thank Lesley and the Merry Monday crew for having me join them today, its a thrill for me!
