Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #92 - Use red, vanilla, kraft and chocolate with ribbon on your Christmas card.

Hi Merry Mondayers! What a wonderful array of snowmen cards you all came up with in the last challenge. Congratulations to the winners.
This week our image has a slightly vintage feel to it, but of course you could go completely modern.
You will be very inspired by the gorgeous cards the Design Team has for you this week.  You will see new additions too. :-) Join the Merry Monday Challenge


 For my card I have gone with Papertrey Ink Bells and Boughs stamp and die set. It is so versatile! I got the idea for white vellum foliage from Melissa Phillip's card Here. Such a beautiful card. Well actually, all her cards are beautiful!! :-) The Rustic white card stock, and the die cut and stamped sentiments are Papertrey ink too. I do love these colours. I treated the bells with a Wink of Stella!! The most easy to use, fabulous, one step shimmer.



That's it from me, have a great week.

Love your card Karen! I love the white vellum foliage and those pretty bells and the strip of stamped ribbon, or at least I think it is ribbon. Hope the Earthquakes aren't affecting you. Stay safe! Happy Birthday, today. Best Wishes for a fantastic year.

White foliage is a nice change from the usual greenery. I love the ribbon layered over the burlap ribbon.
