Christmas for Merry Monday

I really liked my card I created yesterday with the Perfect Fit - Frames stamp set so I used it for my 2nd card.  This time I used the sketch from the Merry Monday Challenge.  This challenge has great sketches.  If you check this one out every Monday all year long, by November you'll have plenty of Christmas cards to send!  I'm a little late discovering Merry Monday, but I've added them to my weekly 'Favorite Challenges' list.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

For this card I used mostly cardstock and a piece of pattern paper from the Pear & Partridge paper pack (X7162B).  I LOVE the striped frame from the Perfect Fit - Frames set (D1527).  I stamped the frame with Olive ink onto Colonial White cardstock and used the coordinating stamp set Perfect Fit - Holidays (B1412) for the center of my frame.  The frame was cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (X1686).   The measurement and page number to find the key that cuts the shape are listed on the carrier sheet for the stamp so I knew the exact size I needed to cut.

I used Opaques Pearl Flourishes (Z1744) and a few Opaques Pearl Adhesive Gems (Z1336) to add a little flair to the card.  

If you missed my other card with the Perfect Fit stamp sets you can find it HERE.
