Merry Monday 213:

Happy Monday all!  I had to schedule this post as right now we are in the air flying to Toronto - squuuuueeeeeeeeee!  My husband got us tickets to two Toronto Blue Jays baseball games and we are SO excited to see our favourite team!!  Needless to say the morning started a wee bit early at 2AM, but isn't that what flying is all about =)

This week at Merry Monday, Debbie would like us to create a Christmas card using the INSPIRATION photo below:

I used red and white and also added some sequins to "glam" my card up a bit just like this glamorous inspiration photo!

I have vowed to stay away from mainly white cards.  I have taken, oh a billion photos of this card.  It has been so cloudy this week that I have given up on white altogether.  You can't even see the texture I used on the white background - grrrrr!!  And my photo is so fuzzy I just want to SCREAM!  

On a more interesting note, the sweater die and sentiment are being used for the first time by me.  I have also just realized that both have been discontinued.  Seriously, how long have had these without using them :S

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  My Favorite Things Cozy Greetings (retired),  Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler
Die cuts:  My Favorite Things Comfy Sweater (retired), My Favorite Things Blueprints 13, My Favorite Things Blueprints 20
Frosting:  Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black

You know the drill...

What a fun card Deanne, I love the sweater. I feel your pain about the white making it fuzzy. I hope you had a great time in Toronto.
