merry christmas...

Hey friends!!  Spent a little time this afternoon making a card for a few challenges:  Merry Monday (what a fun inspiration photo... M&Ms!), August Viva La Verve week 2 sketch and a last minute entry into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  food or drink.  The Merry Monday challenge this week is to use light green, dark green and red.  I went with Stampin Up!'s Pear Pizzazz, Gumball Green and Real Red.   The Verve set I used is Holiday Treats.  I die cut the cups and the tag and then stamped them with the corresponding images using all three ink colors.  A little tab was die cut from some gumball green patterned paper as was the patterned paper panel.  Some Pear Pizzazz cardstock was die cut using a Spellbinder's plain circle die and layered on a doily.  Stamped the sentiment on the tag and then layered everything on the doily/circle combo.  Brought in more of the red by mounting the main panel on a Real Red cardstock base.  Very simple take on the sketch. 

 
 
Thanks for stopping by today...
 
Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white, Stampin Up! Real Red and Pear Pizzazz; Patterned Paper:  Stampin Up!; Stamps:  Verve; Dies:  Verve and Spellbinders; Wilton doily; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento
