Merry Monday #53-A Christmas Card Sketch Challenge

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! 

Our challenge this week is one of my Sketches. I went clean lined and simple with my card this week. I hope you like it! I stamped only part of my Memory Box stamp and then fussy cut the poinsettia. The designer paper is from a pack called "Christmas Cottage by Teresa Collins. It is such a pretty pack of paper.

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: Memory Box and Stampin' Up
Inks: Memento Brown Ink
Papers: Christmas Cottage by Teresa Collins 6 x6 Paper Pad, Kraft CS, Vanilla CS, Poppy Parade CS
Extras: Pearls, Oval Dies (Spellbinders)
