Merry Monday #82 - Colour with a twist

Hi there! How are we all today? Right now it is blowing a gale where I live! I am so over this wind!! Hopefully things are a bit calmer in your part of the world.

Today I have made a card for a challenge over at Merry Monday. It has been many moons since I have joined in the fun over there. From memory, Merry Monday was one of the very first challenges that I ever participated in. It's nice to be back over there.

It was the colour combo on offer that was so attractive to me. 




Here is my card -



These colours are just perfect for these Festive Flurry stamps and dies. It's nice to create Christmas cards with non-traditional colours.

My contribution to the circle part of my card are the small jewels with the sentiment.

That's it for me today! Just a quickie.

Updated to add to Hazels Christmas Challenge HERE

Thanks so much for looking xx
