Merry Monday Sketch - Jolly Jingles & Banners

Pin It Now! This week's Merry Monday challenge is a simple sketch, and I've used it as a break between cleaning my RV and making 16 more pints of mmmmm...strawberry jam!

The ornament on the wheel stamp is embellished with a button, jumbo rhinestone, and basic rhinestones.
I used the Jolly Jingles jumbo wheel stamp to roll out an array of sentiments, and for the banner portion, I took the liberty of making a cluster of small banners against a piece of silver glimmer paper trim.

What I like most about this sketch is the shortened banner portion. If not for that prompt, I would naturally take the banners all the way across the card, and this way offers a little something different!

Check out the Merry Monday challenge and get a little Christmas inspiration!
