Mojo Monday



Good Monday everyone! Are you ready for another awesome sketch for the Mojo Monday challenge?  I went with a distressed style of card this week and wondered if it was a subliminal sign of what I was feeling with so little time left and still much to do before Christmas day is here - lol! I'm guessing Freud would have a theory on it!  I started with  the distressed patterned papers from The Paper Studio's Pine St. Square stack.  It naturally led to distressing all the edges and then burlap and rusty bells seemed like the next logical embellishments.  The snowflake is a SU punch and natural ribbon is also by SU.  The sentiment (Holiday Treats) and holly leaves (Holly Jolly Christmas - ? retired - unable to find in Verve store) are images by Verve.  I picked up some red paint on a brush and flicked it onto the white sentiment panel.  The holly/berries were colored with Copics (G43, G46, R29), fussy cut then Diamond Stickles added to make the berries appear frosted.  I really enjoy making Christmas cards and hate to think the season for creating them is nearly over!

Wow! Freud might say this is a sign of how your are feeling, but I say it's proof of how creative you are! It's wonderful!
