Merry Monday #277 {Stencils}PP380 Carols Of Christmas & Scentsational Season Stampin UP

I want to extend a warm welcome to my newest blog follower.  Image result for thank you minion
My goodness I was having some issues with stamping today.  Perhaps because it's one month today since my mom's passing, but also because I was having some health issues (again) grrrr.   But usually stamping takes my mind off things like that, but NOT today.
I was finally able though to come up with a few cards.  The first one here I made for the challenges at:
I thought the two combined challenges complemented each other well.  I used my very old stripe stencil and sponged the background with real red on kraft paper.  I then used stampin up's Carols of Christmas for the sentiment and Scentsational Season for the gingerbread man and candy canes.  I found a lovely wide piece of red ribbon in my stash, that matched the color real red very nicely.    
I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.. because if you could have caught a glimpse of my inky fingers/stencil.  You never would have thought it would turn out.  Between the smudges and the lines not being straight, I almost gave up with this card.  I have a whole pile of discarded images for the recycling bin. 😉 

Thank you for taking time to pop in for a visit and check out my card.  I encourage you to take a look around my blog, at all my projects. 
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
