I DO like Mondays!

I know, not everybody's favourite day of the week BUT for all us Papertrey Ink fans we now have a new reason to look forward to Monday.  There is a new challenge called Make It Mondays and each week one of the PTI DT will post a video showing that week's technique.  This week there is a fab challenge from Erin Lincoln using different sentiments from different sets in a particular theme.

Now, I don't know if this was REALLY the point but I took it upon myself to get ALL my Christmas sets out and use at least one sentiment from each one.  Here's what happened...


I know what you're thinking... it's a Christmas card and there's no Pure Poppy to be seen!!  See, I can make a card without it!!
I stamped most of the sentiments in Tea Dye distress ink and the darker "Merry Christmas" in Vintage sepia.  I don't know if you can make it out but I also stamped the large poinsettia from Year of Flowers: Poinsettia to give a subtle background detail.  Nothing like my usual style but I had fun - which IS the point isn't it.

Hugs,
