... Have a Holly Jolly Christmas ...


This is my 2nd post today,
please scroll down to see the 1st Holiday card I shared.
 
********************************


I won this lovely Merry Kiss-mas stamp set from CAS-ual Friday's Stamps, and I really wanted to use the set to create a card for CAS-ual Friday's Challenge #79 ~ Winter Blues

The challenge here was to create a Winter Blues themed card with stamps you would normally associate with greens and reds.  The answer was to only use sentiments.  My design is based on Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #62.  I inked up 2 of the sentiments from the set with Paris Dusk ink from Memento, add in some DP and shear ribbon, and it all came together nicely.

Here is the sketch for your reference ...


Until next time ... Enjoy!

Ruza

Cardstock:  Neenah Solar White & AMS Navy, Six by Six DP by My Mind's Eye
Ribbon: 7/8" Shear Navy Blue that I got from a dear friend, brand unknown
