Merry Monday July - Blue banners

Hello there,
well finally I've managed to squeeze a Christmas card out of July to add to Merry Mondays July challenge. I actually made this one nearly two weeks ago but between school holidays, being away because of school holidays, and then dealing with sick kids - again! that was as far as I got. It's a simple one but hope it has a touch of elegance too. The design was influenced by this Merry Monday sketch.

I pulled out a retired SU blue for this one - Blue Brocade and then ransacked my DSP collection for some patterns to match. A bit of satin ribbon and subtle embossing on the front panel once I'd stamped the sentiment finished it off.

If a miracle happens I might just pull one more Christmas card for July off - but don't hold your breath!

Thanks for visiting,
