Final Merry Monday Summer Link-up

Hi everyone - I'm back with one last entry to Merry Monday's Summer Link-up, then the Merry Makers are back on Labor Day with all new challenges. Be sure to stop by and check out my card and an announcement that day!

and August!

I scrolled through past challenges from 2017 and decided to do #241 from March - Deanne's challenge to use Red, Green, and White for your Christmas card. Spotted a red card in my pile and die cut a white snowflake circle tag. Freshly-Made Sketches provided inspiration with sketch #300 from August.

holiday greetings
Supplies: Hero Arts A2 Grenadine card, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Heidi Swapp Marquee Love,
BoBunny Merry & Bright Collection 6x6 pad (green pattern), 
American Crafts Christmas (white/red/green patterned - from Target Hot Spot)
Stamps - Hero Arts DC166 Merry and Bright Tag Set by Lia
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 13, Hero Arts DC168 Winter Cheer Tag Set by Lia,
Hero Arts DI199 Circle Infinity Dies
Inks - Pine Needles Distress Ink, Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink
Other - scrap of ribbon, foam tape

I flipped the order of which strip of paper was on top & I made my strips the same size using a Blueprint banner die - one facing up and one down. My tag is a circle but, no worries, the challenge is long over! I just really liked the look of this sketch. I didn't like leaving the tag without a back since I didn't want to see the line where the red met the green. Liked it much better after backing the tag with a circle cut from glitter paper.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a crafty week!!
