Card challenges





This week the Merry Monday challenge is green and white:




I wanted to use my new MB candle die, but I had to think a bit how I could with just white and green. I had some holly leaves still laying out form my other card project, so I figured that could be my green, and I went with white on everything else, the MB Poinsettia Bloom Trio and Tall Taper Candle. I added the sentiment from SU's Calm Christmas. 

I really was pleased with how this card turned out. I wasn't sure with just the two colors, but it worked!

I'm also entering this card at CASology, the challenge is GLOW.
