Merry Monday #173 - Wishing You Christmas Joy

Happy Monday Everyone,
Today's post is for this weeks Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge.  Kristie is our Hostess and she is challenging us to Use Rainbow Colours on our cards.  I used Stampin' Up's new Watercolour Wash background stamp, coloured it with Markers and then cut the Joy die cut out and added five layers of white card to make it stand out.  I finished off with the rest of the Sentiment and some Multi coloured Sequins.  Hope you will join us and play along this week at Merry Monday.

Stamps: S/U's Watercolour Wash, Simon Says Stamps Happy Meowday, Christmas
Card: Thick Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant
Finishing Touches: Sequins
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix Wonderful Wreath Framelit Dies, Spritzer, Embossing Buddy, White E/Powder, Heat Tool, Dble Sided Tape, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dimensionals, Tombow Multi Purpose Glue
Great to see you drop by, hope you have a fantastic week.
