Merry Monday 168:

Good morning all!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Today is what we call "Saskatchewan Day"(the fantastically gorgeous province I live in) and therefore we get today off.  I have always said Monday holidays are the best!

This week at Merry Monday, I have chosen the theme of using PASTELS on your Christmas card:

Don't forget we are having a two week challenge!!  More time to get your creations in!

I was going to use a few pastel colours on my card, but then decided to go monochromatic mint on this one.  Not that I like to toot my horn, but I am super happy how this came out AND it was a snap to make.  TOOT TOOT

Cardstock - Stampin' Up! Mint Macaron
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 20, MFT Die-namics Blueprints 13, 
My Favorite Things Die-namics Cross-Stitch Circle STAXReverse Confetti Big Chevron Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts
Stamps - 
Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler
Inks - VersaMark Watermark

Paper - Crate Paper Bundled Up
Others - Tsukineko Clear embossing powder, Doodlebug Winter Sparkly sprinkles

Hello Deanne and thank you for this fun challenge. Pastels look good on everything but on Christmas cards, they are a beautiful change from the traditional colors.
I love your amazing card, the patterns on your papers work so good together, beautiful color and design on all your layers.
Thank you for sharing on Merry Monday.
Maria Rodriguez.
