Merry Monday #233 - Five is the Magic Number!




Hello friends.  Debbie is hosting this weeks challenge at Merry Monday and she would like to see you use "5" of something on your Christmas card.  Five ornaments, five bells, five trees, five snowmen, etc. 



I chose to work with MFT's Pure Innocence Season's Tweetings and added 5 little red cardinals to my card:


I've seen so many people use this darling stamp set (including a couple of my teammates!) and just had to have it for myself!  I started by blending Smokey Slate ink to my background layer and then added a few water splatters.  My next layer is the Cover Plate: Winter Woods die (PTI) that I also did a little stamping on with Smokey Slate ink.  The little girl and the Cardinals were embossed in black and then colored with Copics. 

So what "5" of something will you choose to put on your card?  We can't wait to see!  You can check out the inspiration from the rest of my teammates and then play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)
