Merry Monday

Afternoon all, a bit of a different post today. As a result of winning over at Merry Mondays I was asked to be their Guest Designer for their next challenge.

I was most suprised a: to win and b: to be asked to be their GD, thanks Bonnie and the girls.
So without further ado here is my card.



This is one of my favourite layouts, this time using a Tilda stamp from Magnolia. I don't know the name as it's not on the packet, it was one of my bargain bucket buys. The DP is from the NitWits Still Joyful Hearts collection and the top layer was dry embossed using a Cuttlebug  Snowflake folder. The aperture was cut before embossing using a Sizzix hexagon die. Tilda was coloured using Copics and the greeting is from a Woodware set. The berries on the holly paper were hi lighted with Glossy Accents to make them stand out.
OK, that's about it. I hope you'll be inspired to have a go and join in the fun. Pop along and see what the rest of the team have done and have a go yourself.

    They are always beautiful these Swedish girls. Blondes or brunettes, sitting or standing, Tildas are always very good-looking! I love, as she sits astride the frame! A gorgeous christmas card!
