Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge {Merriest Holiday Season}

Welcome to another week of the Merry Monday Christmas card Challenge. We hope you will join us and link up a Christmas card using the sketch above. This week I created another card with my Poinsettia die from Spellbinders. I love it. Before I lifted off the metal die from the cut paper, I used it as a stencil and inked the "veins" of the poinsettia and the leaf. I am playing along with the One Year Anniversary Challenge over at Dynamic Duos and chose Cherry Cobbler and my Choice, which is Crumb Cake.

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: Memory Box
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Papers: Teresa Collins, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Extras: Pearls, Poinsettia Die, Sponges, Dimensionals
