Merry Monday # 97

A lovely color combination for this week's challenge over at the
I made my own stencil with the "merry" from PTI Holiday words,
laid it on the paper and then put some Viva Ferro Silver embossing paste over it.
I had to be sure to adhere the two little pieces in the "e"...but then I was all set!
It is really pretty and shiny and has a bit of texture to it.
The Silver Bell is from Lil' Inkers. 
The stars are some silver confetti that I bought at Micheals.
 
I hope you will play along and get ahead of your Christmas stash!!
 
thanks for taking a look!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
