Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #157

Monday, May 4, 2015

It certainly IS a "Merry" Monday because it's time for a new Merry Monday Christmas Card challenge!!  Bonnie is our hostess and she brings us a challenge with tons of possibilities: create a Christmas card with embossing (wet or dry)!!

 I opted for a simple wet embossing design using stamps from Paper Smooches' A Holy Holiday set.  After watercoloring the background, I simply embossed the deer in black and stars in gold.

What will you come up with?  If you need some inspiration, simply pop on over to the challenge blog to see the awesome creations of the Design Team!  Hope you'll join in the fun this week!
