Christmas Blessings card for Merry Monday challenge

Hi stamping buddies, I hope your Monday was great. I am exhausted so this will be a quick post. It is time to get this ole' gals butt to bed. I worked late and had to stop at a couple of friends so I got home late. I stamped this card just now for this easy card challenge. I used the Be OF Good Cheer DSP and the stamp set Christmas Blessings. Layered two pieces of the DSP. Stamped my greeting on the top piece and then stamped the image. Easy Peasey!  I had already washed my face so I didn't even have my glasses on and I stamped the image in Basic Black and colored the image in with ink pads and blender pens. I didn't do too bad after I put my glasses on I see. LOL! I used Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green ink to color in the design with a blender pen. I used  Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green and Very Vanilla CS. Then I used my Cherry Cobbler Marker and the Color Spritzer Tool to spritz over my card. Oh and I textured the Gumball Green with the Perfect Polka Dots DSP.  I cut out the design with the Labels Framelits. I thought the two sheets of that DSP's  matches the image pretty good. Dotted and with a swerve. Okay this morning I am looking at my challenge card I made without my glasses and I think that bouquet is supposed to be mistletoe and I made it in to a bouquet. Oh well leave it to me. LOL! Oh well, I like it as a Christmas plant anyway as I sit here shaking my head.
