Merry Monday #92 & Freshly Made Sketch #120

I had a great time making Christmas cards today for this week's Merry Monday challenge... which was to use Chocolate, Kraft, Red & Vanilla with ribbon.  I pulled out the Classy Doily stamp, which I haven't used yet (gasp!) and coloured it up with my Copics.  I was all set to make two of them, but decided to change up the colour combo for the second one, using the Frosted papers.  I've used this week's Freshly Made Sketch for both:



 
 
Patterned papers are Mistletoe & Frosted; Cardstock is Chocolate, Kraft, Colonial White, Cocoa & Frosted Turquiose; Stamp set is Classy Doily; Chocolate/Cream striped ribbon - all Close To My Heart; Copic Markers.

Nice cards. I didn't really think much of this stamp before I saw your cards. Kinda rethinking it now.
Thanks for the inspiration and the lovely idea

Oh wow! This is one of those stamps that I was on the fence about but ended up not getting because I felt like I didn't need another doily, but you are making me change my mind. It looks STUNNING!

The Classy Doily looks awesome! It pops right out with your colouring! I really like how you used the ribbon on the banner. Love both of the cards :)
