Merry Christmas! CR84FN and MORE!

Happy Monday!  I am in a Christmas card making zone!  I am slightly behind with my Christmas card stash this year.  Not sure how that happened, but it did!  Anyway, I am going to be knocking out a few for sure in the next coming days to get ready for mailing in December.  So sit back, enjoy, and let your Merry be Bountiful!

Today's Christmas card features stamps and dies from Verve!  I am using Verve's Merry Wishes and Bountiful Backgrounds stamp sets.  I am also using Verve's Cut Above Winter Fun, Snowflake Tidings, Ribbon Banner, and Pennant Trim dies.

I am using the sketch from The Paper Players PP119 and the colors from CR84FN Color Challenge CR84FN66.  I really love neutral tones for some Christmas cards at times.  I am using my MME All is Bright paper collection.  I love the sketch.  No bow, but I did add a little sparkly snowflake on the right.  

Linked up to 52 Card Pickup Week 44!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
