YAHOO, it's Thursday!  One more day, one more!  But while it is still today, I would like to share the card I made for the current Merry Monday challenge, where the hostess Wendy has asked for greens, pinecones and the word "believe."
Here is my take on it, which is inspired by a card sample in the Pinecone Spray set from Fred, She Said.  I resized the pine cones in Silhouette to better fit the scale of the card, but I think maybe they coulda been a smidge bigger...
Anyway, the rest is pretty simple, the blue paper is from a digital set called Wild Sorbet by Michelle Coleman, and the Believe is from a Christmas set from Cloud9.  I stamped it in Broken China, and also used that ink to distress the edges of the card.  That's all there is to this one...oh wait, I also used Wink of Stella on the "snowy" parts of the pine cone images.  There, NOW that's!
I want to add this to these challenges:
Hmmm, that's all I can find this week...thanks for visiting and take care!
