Merry Monday #250 - Rustic Christmas

Hi there,
Today's challenge is brought to us by Deanne, who is challenging us to Create a Rustic Christmas card for this weeks Merry Monday Challenge. I used Designer Paper for the Rustic Brick and Distressed Window feel. The Sentiment is stamped on some more Distress Wood DSP and I finished off by using my Blender Pen to clean off the heart and add the Real Red before I stamped.  Then I added the Hemp.
Stamps: S/U's Holiday Home, Thoughtful Branches, Papertrey Inks Love Lives Here Holiday
Card:Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Wood Textures DSP
Ink: Stazon Black, Real Red, Soft Suede
Finishing Touches: Hemp Twine
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Hearth and Home Framelit Dies,  Blender Pen, Distressing Tool, Foam Tape, Dble Sided Tape

Lovely to see you here today.  Happy Stamping!
