MERRY MONDAY

Merry Monday is back with their Christmas card challenge after a summer break with a fantastic challenge to use black, gold and white.  I was so intrigued by the design technique by Danielle today on Make It Monday that I decided to try on my card.

I first positioned all my poinsettia stamps on my MISTI and stamped in Versamark and then HA gold powder.  Next I stamped again onto a white card base using black ink and embossing in clear powder.  Stamped the sentiment the same way.  Then added a piece of fun foam to the larger piece and added it to the card base, matching up the lines.  Felt like it needed a bit of "something" so added the thin black strip and a few black sequins - happy.
Thanks for stopping and love to read your kind comments.
