Merry Monday 126

Monday, September 15, 2014

Happy Monday everyone!  It's time for a new challenge at Merry Monday.  This week Karren is challenging us to make the sentiment be the showcase of our Christmas card.  Well, it just so happens that I had recently come across this beautiful card and thought I could easily adopt the design as a Christmas card.



I guess this is kind of a take on the bokeh look that I keep seeing across blogland.  I don't know that it technically qualifies as bokeh but I think the look is pretty cool.  I added a ho-ho-ho sentiment that I cut in black with my Silhouette Cameo.  I love how it stand out against the circles.

The Merry Monday design team have got some amazing inspiration for you this week so be sure to check them out.  We hope to see you in the gallery! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Paper:  Dove Gray (WPlus9); Old Olive, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  So Saffron, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler (SU)
Accessories:  Ho Ho Ho cut file (Silhouette Cameo)
