Freshly Made #112 and Merry Monday inspiration

I have finally broke the seal and started cranking out Christmas cards. Most of them will be used as gifts to family, since I still send out Christmas cards with The Piglet's photos on them. But I continue to make them because I really like doing it.

So, I paired this week's Freshly Made Sketch with Merry Monday (stripes, chocolate, red and a heart/star).

Here is my card using both inspiration pieces:

I used an embossing folder to add the stripes on my Kraft cardstock. The pinecones are stamped and trimmed from my PTI Peaceful Pinecones stamp set. The sentiment is from CTMH Scandinavian Wishes set. I added some washi tape from the CTMH Sparkle & Shine collection. That's been sitting out on my desk staring at me - daring me to use it after I just HAD to buy it! I'm terrible! But I love the colors and sense these will be good ones year-round. I really needed  some red washi. That was serious business.
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
