                    Merry Monday #250 (Rustic Christmas)

Hello Stamper's!   The Hostess this week is Deanne and her challenge is a Christmas card with a Rustic feel to it.  I immediately dug out my Hardwood Stamp and my Swirly Scribbler Dies.   I used Cherry  Cobbler for my base and fussy cut pine branches and then topped it all off with the Burlap ribbon.   I stamped the pine branches with two shades of green and also used white to enhance.    I only bought the stamp set for Christmas Pines and was kicking myself for not buying the die cut.   After fussy cutting the pine branches, I have since added the die cut to my next order.  LOL
