With the emphasis on just how very merry that merry is!  I almost posted this card on Monday for St Patrick’s Day, because my Merry is more than a little Merry, it’s three sheets to the wind if you ask me!  And as America has a wonderful habit of turning any country’s ethnic holiday into a drinking day, it did seem rather apt, but the green of Monday won out in the end, as it should.

So, after I’d completed this card I thought the blue glitter letters needed a bit of oomph to make them stand out, so I edged them, badly, with a red ink pen.  I’d wanted to use red glitter letters from the start but didn’t have enough of the same size or font to spell out anything, so resorted to the blue ones.  I didn’t even notice how wonky the “merry” was until I outlined it and made it stand out!  Never mind, it’s a pretty funky card anyway.

The image is from Molly Blooms, coloured with Prisma pencils and Stickles, plus a bit more of that Liquid Pearls White Opal as it was still on my desk.  The card is a centre step card, I had it ready made in my scrap paper box, it was actually the prototype for my first card of this type that I made in January.  The papers are from the Christmas scrap box too and are both DCWV and the red card is a bit from The Paper Company.

The die is Memory Box, sent by a pal of mine (thank you!).  I did receive this die for Christmas recently so I can now cut my own when I need too, but she really helped me out with her kindness last year.
