Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #49 {Winter "Hi"}

Welcome to my weekly Christmas card Challenge called "Merry Monday"! Each week, I post a challenge to inspire you to create a Christmas card for your Christmas card stash! I have a design team of 10 lovely ladies and we are all working on getting a Christmas card done each week! This week we have a sketch for you to try!!! Even though the sketch is square, feel free to make an A2 card or any other sized card, just as long as the sketch is still visible.

Welcome to our guest designer this week, Kay Miller. She has created a beautiful card! Thank you Kay!

Here is my card for this week's sketch!!! I used a sweet image from the old "AMUSE" stamp line and the matching sentiment. I also got out some of the fun May Arts ribbon which I LOVE and added a big bow to my card!!! I was inspired by Stacey Schafer's pretty bow found HERE. Thanks Stacey!!

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: retired AMUSE
Inks: Copics and Memento Black
Papers: Real Red, October Afternoon, SU! DSP, Whisper White
Extras: May Arts Ribbon, Embossing Folder (Swiss Dots) and Big Shot

Wait until you see the beautiful samples from the design team! Wow, they created such amazing cards this week! Thank you ladies!! I am so proud of my team, they are wonderful and I appreciate all the work they do during the week with commenting!!!
