Merry Monday#50 - It's Xmas again

Hello everyone,

It wasn't too hard to make this next creation since it feels like Christmas all over again, LOL!! It's snowing here in Quebec, Canada. I think we got 10-15cms yesterday and maybe another 5cms today it's not much but it's very windy so it looks like a Winter Wonderland. Winter is very long here but when it's this pretty it's tough to be sad about it ;))

I wanted to participate in Merry Monday challenges again this week and the theme is Elegance!!

Here is my creation:

And here is a closer look at the Stamp, can you see the Season's Greeting?

What I love most about this stamp from Penny Black (40-080 kind wishes) is that it says the same thing in many languages so for me it's perfect since I'm Italian and my husband is Portuguese. I will be using this stamp to make cards to send to Italy and Portugal next holiday season for sure!

For this card, I stamped with a versamark stamp pad, added embossing powder, Kaleidoscope from Stampendous, and heat embossed it, it's the perfect amount of elegance don't you think!!

I also added some bling and ribbon from American Crafts.

I will be entering the following challenges:
Always Playing with Paper, Merry Monday, #50 Elegance
Cards by Lady Anne, 6th Stamp Challenge
Crafting by designs, anything goes
Penny's Paper-Craft Challenges, #115 anything goes

Stay tuned for another great card with the same stamp! YES another Christmas card!!

love & create ...with a smile :)
