Merry Monday #116

I guess its time to make more Christmas cards! I basically could not resist playing in the Merry Monday challenge - such a great inspiration picture this time!



Who would have thought green wood looks so good? Although I still think there is something missing here - perhaps I should have grunged up the wood a bit? What do you think? But regardless it too late for that now....I am just not good with grunge....

    

I am also linking this card with my favorite challenge - the Snippets Playground - the stars and the white bottom panel are snippets
and with Simply Create Too - Christmas in July - I am on the DT there - you have another week to link up your creations - see you there, perhaps? Also linking with Virgina's view - die cuts

Materials: Papertrey Woodgrain embossing plate, Memory Box die: Modern Landscape, Mama Elephant - Merry Greetings, Simon Says star dies, copper brads - see those door knobs in the picture? Had to get those in somehow...

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hi again Cornelia - you're keeping me busy today :) I do love this card and such a great idea to have the green wood background, we all seem to go for deep blue. Nope, you didn't need to grunge it up at all - I think we may be alike in that respect - doing messy grungy stuff makes my teeth itch! My snippets card for Sunday is also for Merry Monday - clean and crisp :)

Hugs, Di xx

Seriously, the landscape die on top of green woodgrain?!? Getouttahere!!! That is totally awesome, and simple, which makes it even more awesome. LOVE this.

I love the "starry sky" as a garland, and green wood grain does look good! :)

This is just so sweet...first you create this beautiful scene and then top it off with a wonderful stary sky...just genius!

I love it just the way it is! I know...green wood, green sky (in my card)...who would think it would be pretty?! LOVE the stars too! Thanks so much for playing with my challenge this week at Merry Monday!

I think this is just perfect as is, Cornelia! Love that green "wood"! Thanks for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!

Barb Ghig said...
