Merry Monday Challenge #32

Hey Everyone

It’s Monday so that means it’s time for Merry Monday again.  Here’s Lesley’s sketch this week:

Can you believe it? – I’ve gone with more punch art.  I’m not sure what’s come over me, but I’m on a roll with punch art on my Christmas cards. This time I’ve gone with a pine cone.  I saw a pine cone card on Pinterest and loved the idea.  I’ve used my build a blossom punch and curled each of the cones with my bone folder to make them more 3D. I then used my dauber to ink Early Espresso around each cone to give them more definition.  And finally I cut some Always Artichoke cardstock thinly to make my pine cone needles.

Head over to Lesley’s blog and check out the gorgeous Christmas cards the design team have created this week.  If you have time, we’d love to see you join in!

Thanks for stopping by.
