Merry Monday July Challenge - Sketch #5

Hello and HO HO HO!  I have a pretty quick and easy card to share with you today.  Lesley the hostess and creator of the Merry Monday Challenge has decided to add a twist to her normal challenge so for the month of July instead of a weekly sketch, she is challenging us to make 4 cards during the month using any of the past sketches that she has designed.  My card today is based on the Merry Monday Challenge - Sketch #5 (see below).

Since I am eagerly awaiting another order with some new Christmas paper, I decided to pull out an old favorite from last season.  Love the rich Cherry Cobbler color and vintage feel of this paper! The darling felt mittens are also from a retired stash of products that I have been hoarding and seemed to be the perfect time to use.  The sentiment is new from a great set called "More Merry Messages".  I love how well the scrolly font compliments this DSP - don't you?  Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting me today - I'm sure glad you did! I hope you have a most wonderful day! Hugs!

Details and supplies (all from Stampin Up): Finished card size is standard A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").  Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla.  DSP - Deck the Halls (retired).  Mittens - retired felt accents.  Sentiment - More Merry Messages.  I used the 2 1/2" circle punch as well.
