Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  Happy Monday!  I had a fabulous weekend, it was very productive at the craft table.  It was a pretty laid back weekend even thought it was busy.  Saturday, we got the house cleaned and put up the tree.  I got the entire week's worth of projects done and it was just a good weekend.  I even enjoyed a glass of wine while having a phone conversation with my sister.

So this week's challenge at Paper Pretties is up and we're playing with a color combo.  Red, Green plus one other color.  I pretty much stayed with red and green.  My card features a new image by ARTish, this one is called Berry Merry Christmas.


I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop and it helped me create a fairly clean and simple card.  It does have a bit of dimension, but not enough that it would require an extra 20 cents in postage.

Hooray for less postage :) I'm about to make that large payment today. Yikes.
Love the tree - the snow on the branches? Awesome touch! Glad you had a great weekend :)
