Merry Christmas... In March

I have so much Christmas stuff that I need to use up.  I keep collecting Christmas goodies and never come close to ever using it up around the Holidays.  I love the concept of the Merry Monday blog challenge and always think I should make Christmas cards but for some reason never have enough time to get to it.  Another thing that I liked about the challenge this week is they had a color inspiration that included River Rock.  I am pretty sure that River Rock is the only color of cardstock that I have never used.  It is so perfect for Christmas!  I couldn't believe it... I felt obligated to enter this challenge just so I could use my River Rock cardstock.  I also realized that I appreciate the coordinating ribbons that Stampin' Up! offers but I am just too cheap to buy ribbon in every color and I will probably give in soon after looking at this card.


Stamp: Holiday Best (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, River Rock (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: VersaMark
Framelits: Bitty Banners (Stampin' Up!)
Extras: Die (Lifestyle Crafts), Embossing Folder (Sizzix), Ribbon (Michaels)
