As promised...a card! :)

     Hello, bloggy friends!  I have finally gotten around to participating in the Merry Monday challenge I have been following for some time now at Lesley's blog, Always Playing with Paper.  I always managed to just miss entering...I would have the card done, but never get around to photographing it!  Well, not this week!
     I'm not sure how much I like my final result.  The sketch was great to work with, but I'm just not sure about my choice of materials.  I followed my friend Janet Kay's lead and used some glitter paper on my card too, just as she did this week!  Thanks for the inspiration, Janet Kay!  Speaking of my materials, the pretty ornament is a rub on I got at Ben Franklin a couple of years ago.  I inked around the rub on with Memento Lady Bug ink.  I used that ink for the sentiment as well.  The snowflake paper and red base is from a cardstock set I got at Michael's some weeks ago.
     Well, I suppose that's all I have to say about my entry.  I'm gonna go have a look at the rest of this week's entries...how bout you?  Until next time, take care!

  9. I think it's really pretty! Someone on your Christmas card list will like it too! Thanks for playing with us at Merry Mondays this week! BTW, your word verification is on; you may want to turn it off since some people find it pesky and won't leave a comment, and we want you to get as many comments as you deserve! Let me know if you need help doing it! Thanks again!
