Merry Monday #77 and Nonni's Card Challenge



Hi everyone, I hope you're all well.

Here's something I've made for Merry Monday and Nonni's Card Challenge (Let's Get Inky), a brand new card challenge hosted by the very talented Nonni!


Nonni's challenge is to make a Christmas card using stamping. Why not pop over and check out all the beautiful DT inspiration. Here's the brief:

Let's Get Inky -Stamp A Happy Christmas! 
Let's create Christmas cards with stamping playing the main role! You could use fun techniques like masking and combine background stamps with smaller stamps... Or how about using non-Christmas stamps for Christmas and playing with some embossing powders? Or stamping with watercolors? Or tone on tone stamping maybe? The possibilities are endless... Let's get inky and creative! You can choose any style from CAS to vintage, what ever you like the best... You can use embellishments too -just don't cover up your fabulous stamping completely!

I've chosen to use non-Christmas stamps. The branches and baubles are PTI Heart to Heart #12 which is a flower set I've used here. The string-and-bow stamp is by Hobby Art, sentiment by Paula Pascual. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
