Christmas in June with Merry Monday

I have started working on Christmas themed cards for OWH.  I thought it would be fun to try some Merry Monday sketches since they are pretty straight-forward in design and suites my style.  Here is the link to the Merry Monday blog in case you would like to visit the site:  Merry Monday (Always Playing with Paper).  There are a lot of great sketches and beautiful cards to be seen!

I've used the ideas from our last OWH Bootcamp - Let Me Repeat (Using Repetition in Design) in all of my cards from this post.  I find it pretty easy to incorporate the design principles from this lesson with Christmas themed cards since the color palette is somewhat fixed.  I did, however, try and pay attention to repeating shapes especially with the two mouse cards.  I haven't used chevrons very much, and I was pleased to see how they mimicked the edges of the mouse's top and hat.
