Merry Monday #158 - Christmas Bauble

Happy Monday Everyone,
Today's post is for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge, Deanne is our Hostess this week and she is challenging us to use a Stencil on our cards. I used Stampin' Up's Dots and Stripes Stencil to create the striped background and sponged it with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distress Ink and added some pearlescent spray. I coloured the Christmas Bauble image with Blendabilities, finishing off with some gold cord and gold foil card as a mat for my sentiment.

Stamps: S/U's Christmas Bauble, Many Merry Messages
Card: Whisper White, Gold Foil
Ink: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities. Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distress Ink
Finishing Touches: Gold Cord, Perfect Pearls Mist Pearlescent Spray
Cool Tools: Dots and Stripes Stencil, Sponge, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals
Thanks for visiting today.
