Warm Wishes

Lately I've begun "collecting" 6x6 pads of DSP.  Their graphics are sized smaller so they work well with cards. Many of them have lovely images that don't need much embellishing, like the one I used on my card today.


This week's theme at Merry Monday Challenges is right up my alley.  I just had to participate.

MM#97
For the past couple of weeks I haven't been able to play along with the challenges at Merry Monday, but I made this card after I finished my first card.


It feels good knowing I am building my stash of Christmas cards.  I used some retired Holly Berry DSP from my stash for this card. 

Use Holly
I'm pretty sure I will make more cards for this week's challenge with these lovely colors.   They are perfect for winter.



Stamps: Seasonal Flourish (Waltzing Mouse Stamps)
Paper: Glistening (Authentique), Soft Sky (SU)
Accessories: Silver Ribbon (SU), Silver Embossing Powder, Clear Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh)

Aren't those 6x6 pads the best?! The simplicity of your first card is so pleasing. Nice mix of elements on your second card too!

I have no clue what DSP is, but your cards are lovely, and it's hard to decide which one I like best. I do enjoy the change of the silver and aqua for Christmas, though.
