Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #109 - Use flowers on your Christmas card.

The challenge for this week at Merry Monday is to use flowers on your Christmas card. I love the soft greens with the red in Bonnie's image.


For my card I have used the traditional poinsettia flower ( not really the flower, actually leaves, the flowers are the wee bits in the centre) The die is from Memory Box. I didn't do the extra step of embossing the veins on the leaves. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.




 See what the design team have created to inspire you by going to the challenge site (link above) or by clicking on the links below.

This month's featured designer is Rita Wright

Sadly, this is my last post as a design team member for Merry Monday (also The  Card Concept Team).  I have totally enjoyed my time on the team with these lovely, super creative ladies. I highly recommend working with Lesley on any of her challenges, she is organised, encouraging, and of course very talented. At the moment my time is taken up with work etc but I look forward to linking up in the MM gallery in the down times.

Thanks for dropping in.
