I had some difficulty creating links for this card. I cannot get the set from Damask Love to work in the inlinkz tool - but all of the Damask Love links go directly to the post that describes how you buy the set. I also could not find the pine boughs on the second card. All of my dies are on magnetic sheets without the original packaging. My notes say that the dies are from Savvy Stamps but the only pine die that I can find from them has a trio of branches and my set has two - so clearly my notes are wrong.

Merry Monday: Red, Green and White
This week's challenge at Merry Monday is to use the classic colors red, green and white. While I have been having a lot of fun going with non-traditional colors, or with wintery colors, it is fun to get back to a classic color scheme. I also had a fun surprise in my mailbox yesterday when I got back from Thanksgiving in the mountains (actually I had four fun surprises!) I received the limited edition stamp set that I had ordered from Amber at Damask Love. It is truly lovely and I think it's just perfect with a classic color scheme.
I liked working with the set so much, I did a second card right away. Sadly, I have enough Christmas sets that I only have to use each one once to fill all of my Christmas card needs (which I fully realize makes for very expensive Christmas cards) - but this set is too nice to not see ink a few times! I did change the green on this one. There is a color from Papertrey Ink called Pinefeather (the first card uses Stampin' Up's Mossy Meadow). I've just never warmed up to Pinefeather, probably because I don't find it to be warm, but every so often I challenge myself to use it. It is elegant, I just prefer more olive tones.
This is truly a beautiful stamp set - be sure to check out what Amber has done with it on Damask Love.
