Merry Monday and Christmas Muse

After spending most of my day out in the sun, I decided I wanted to create a Christmas card using this week's inspiration of Muse ChristmasVisions and Merry Monday. I used the layout and design elements from MCV (patterned paper, 2 layer sentiment panel and an embellishment) and the colour combo from MM (red, green, kraft and white).

Materials used:
Neenah desert storm & solar white cardstock
Red cardstock (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned paper (Dutch bargain store)
Frame dies (Simon Says Stamp)
Sentiment stamp (Studio Calico)
Poinsettia dies (Brittania dies, Joanna Sheen)
White gel pen
Enamel Accents
Clear Wink of Stella

I'm also linking this card up at:
