Merry Monday 44 & Mojo Monday 275

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!  I stated in an earlier post that I didn't get enough of making Christmas cards this season, so I'm glad to have Merry Monday to be able to create all year long!  This weeks challenge was a color one, so I combined it with Mojo Monday Sketch #275.  It's been ages since I've played over at Mojo Monday.  

Before I started this card, I glanced down at my scrap paper pile and saw two patterned papers laying there.  The red wood-grain from the Frostwood Lodge collection and Island Indigo In-color strip.  Ah-ha!  There's my starting point, I thought!  I searched my stamps to find a fun set to match with the papers.  I came up with Close To My Heart's Evergreen set, which I hadn't have a chance to play with the year yet.  Perfect!  You might be able to tell, but I tweeked the colors a bit.  I used Cherry Cobbler instead of Real Red and Cool Carribean instead of Pool Party.

Here's a list of supplies.....
Stamps: Evergreen
Paper: White, Island Indigo, Cool Carribean, Frostwood Lodge DP, Incolor DP
Ink: Cool Carribean, Cherry Cobbler, Versa Mark
Accessories: Iridescent Ice EP, Cherry Cobbler ribbon, Scallop Square Duo die, Snowflake and Polka  dot EF, Northern Frost Decorative Strip die

Thanks for taking a peek!
