Peace, Love & Joy

   It's been a couple of weeks since I participated in one of the Christmas card challenges. But when I saw this sketch



for this week's Merry Monday challenge, I thought I would be able to make a card quickly. My goal was to do it in ten minutes after I had selected my stamps and colors.  Well, forty-five minutes later,this is what I ended up with.



Here's an up close shot of the ribbon, bling and holly.


  I really love this sketch and the way the card turned out. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Carol, this is simply stunning! I love your choice of colors and cardstock, very classic and elegant. I may put this one in my inspiration file :)

This is really pretty. In my book, 45 minutes is still pretty quick.

I'm glad to know that someone else takes 45 minutes to do a 10 minute card, Carol! But you know what? This looks like it took much longer! I love this shade of green with the red, the sweet triple bow with the punched holly and the stamped holly is perfect! So glad you could share with us again at Merry Monday!

I LOVE this card and I wouldn't feel bad about it taking 45 minutes...masterpieces take a while! I really like the colors, the beads, the bow...just love all of it! :0)

This is stunning, Carol! It looks like a card that would have taken way longer than 45 minutes. Wow, this one is a keeper for my faves!!
