Merry Monday Any Past Sketch Will Do! & The Play Date Cafe 'Color Splash' Challenge #159

Hello my friends.

Happy Tuesday!  I would like to thank Leslie and the design team members for choosing my card as the Top Pick!  I almost fell off my chair, I couldn't believe it!  You can see my card HERE.

Today, I created a card for this week's Merry Monday - Any Past Sketch Will Do!  I chose Challenge #33 Sketch:



I used the combo colors Black, White and a "Splash" of Maroon from The Play Date Cafe Challenge #159:



My card:



The card base is Very Vanilla, followed with Cherry Cobler and SU Festival of Prints.  The gorgeous Christmas Tree is from SU Snow Swirled Stamp Set.  I added some rhinestones to the tree and a thick black ribbon in the middle.  I also incorporated red ribbon and made a pretty bow on top.  The sentiment is from Just Rite Noel Christmas Ornaments.  This stamp set has 15 different sentiments. I love it! 

Thanks so much for stopping by,
