Merry Monday Challenge #7

Happy Monday!!  This week I have a simple sketch for Merry Monday. I hope you like it!  Feel free to flip the image or change the ovals to another shape.  As long as the sketch is still visible, the sky's the limit!  The aim of this challenge is to encourage you to get a jump start on your Christmas cards for next December!  I am challenging myself to get ahead, and I hope you will join me. 

This month's featured designer is Torico, and she has created an adorable Christmas card with the sketch, I love the neutral background! Guest Designer Melissa has also created a beautiful, vintage styled card with the sketch! I love the distressing!  Aren't both cards so pretty!!  Thank you ladies!
