Merry Monday Challenge #47 & Stampin’ Royalty #160

Hey Everyone

We have a fun challenge for you for this weeks Merry Monday Challenge

It’s Tic, Tac, Toe Time


I’ve gone diagonal from the first tile, so that gives me – Blue, Colour with Markers and Ribbon.

I used the baubles from Merry & Type and coloured them in with my Baja Breeze and Midnight Muse Markers. The designer series paper I’ve used on the base of my card is a retired Stampin’ Up! one called Ski Slope. I’ve combined this with some current Midnight Muse designer series paper. ¬†For the background on my main panel I stamped the log words from Open Sea in Baja Breeze for a different look.

I’m also entering my card into this weeks Stampin’ Royalty Challenge where their challenge is to use Polka Dots. You’ve gotta love Polka Dots! I think they work perfectly for a Christmas card.

Here’s my card:


We’d love for you to join us so head over to Lesley’s blog and join in the fun. While you’re there, check out the gorgeous inspiration from the Merry Makers or click on their names below.
