Merry Monday # 116

We are finally home after almost 3 weeks being gone.
This card is for the Merry Monday Challenge  and they are asking for green and white.
I made my own gift wrap by stamping a little tree all over the paper, then I white embossed the strings and bow from No Strings Attached (PTI).
Feels good to be inky again!!
I am only home 8 days and I leave again for 12 days! 
I am going to have some serious withdrawals, I think!!
 
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Hope you all are having a great summer!
 
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
