Card for Merry Monday 34

Sometimes a simple sketch is the most appealing, and that is certainly the case with the latest sketch for the Merry Monday Challenge. I got three cards made last night, using variations of this sketch!

I die cut the label from red Bazzil, and since I felt it has a Victorian look, I used a K&Co 3-d sticker as the embellishment. It also has that 'old time' feel.

I added a strip of striped paper and button twine, then stamped the Merry Christmas and added 2 tiny gems.

The sticker has glitter and a gem to give the card that Christmas SPARKLE I seem to crave.

White A2 card base - Office Depot white card stock
Red card stock - Bazzill
Patterned paper - K&Co
3-d Sticker - K&Co
Label die - Tim Holtz, Sizzix
Bling - from my stash, Michaels
Word stamp - Papertrey Ink
Foam tape.

I will share the other two sketch cards another time. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
