Merry Monday #99 {A Colour Challenge-Green, Brown & Gold}


Happy Monday! One week until Spring Break and I am looking forward to it! I have a HUGE lists of TO-Dos! Spring clean my closet, spring clean my craft room and READ!!! I can never read during the school year...my brain is never able to enjoy a fluff book...and so I cherish my time off...to read and organize!!!


This week Margaret Moody is our hostess at Merry Monday and she has offered up a neutral colour palette sure to please! This week we are using Brown, Green, Gold and White or Cream on our Christmas cards! I was so excited about the "gold" as I just picked up a small pack of textured papers and gold was in there! Yeah! I made a simple white poinsettia out of a couple of flower punches. The main punch is actually retired from Stampin' Up.


I used the awesome sketch at Seize the Sketch and added a couple of "greens" to my card. I am happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it too! Have a terrific Monday, hope you remembered to Spring ahead!!! Hooray, daylight!!!
