Merry Christmas with Merry Monday

Hi!

I snuck in some crafty time just for fun! I have really missed playing along with the Merry Monday and Colourq challenges, so this week was the perfect time to combine them both. 

For the month of July, Merry Monday's challenge you can use any past Merry Monday sketch. Here is my card using a Merry Monday Sketch and the colors at Colourq.
All of the stamps are from Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas except the sentiment which is from DeNami Designs.  
I adore this Father Christmas image that comes in the set. I used Vintage Sepia ink on Kraft to complete the vintage feel.  I punched a snowflake out of some black with white polka-dot patterned paper and added it to a pretty glittered flower embellishing with a dew drop and twine. 
Here is the sketch I chose to work with.
Here are the Colourq colors. 
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
~Tammy~
