Merry Monday #296 - Barn Door and A Sad Farewell

Hi there,
It's Monday and time for a new challenge and our last at Merry Monday.  This week Nina would like us to make a Rustic Christmas card.  I used the Barn Door Stamps from Stampin' Up and did a Double Barn Door for my card.  As you can see from the photos the doors open and a Message is revealed.  I coloured the stamp with Markers for the inside sentiment.  The bow on the Wreath is Gold embossed.  The dog inside is coloured with my Aqua Painter and sleeping on some straw.  Hope you like it!

Unfortunately Lesley Croghan has decided to close the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge Blog so this will be the last lot of Inspiration from the Design Team.  So we bid you a fond farewell

Stamps: S/U's Barn Door, Hardwood, Cosy Christmas, Sitting Here
Card: Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Poppy Parade, Soft Suede, Versamark, Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix Sliding Door Framelit Dies,  Lil Inker Stitched Rectangle Dies, Sponge, Embossing Buddy, Gold E/Powder, Heat Tool, Aqua Painter, Dble Sided Tape,  Mini Dimensionals, Tombow Multi Purpose Glue
Thanks for visiting today.  Lovely to hear from you!
