Merry Monday #85

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! :)
Hard to believe only 3 more days and it's Thanksgiving.I hope some of you will have an extra bite of the yummy food for me!! haha I was 19 last time i got to be in the USA for Thanksgiving and i will never forget the huge meal we had...was SO yummy! :)

Today i get to show you a card i made for the new Merry Monday #85 Challenge.
I made Top Pick 2 weeks ago and so i get to be their Guest Designer for this Challenge!! :)



This really was a Challenge for me! :) Sometimes when i am limited in colors or elements than my brain sure has to do some serious working! ;) But that's what i love about Challenges,because sometimes you leave your comfort zone,try something new,and either you like it or you don't.And in this case,i really like how the card turned out. :)


supplies: Clearly Besotted - Signature Christmas Stamp - In Stitches: Christmas Dies ( Kraft Star ), Sizzix Star Dies, Enamel Dots, Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Distress Glitter - Rock Candy, Hemp Twine, Wink of Stella

I hope you will play along!!! :)

Thank you for stopping by!!!
