Mojo Monday

Merry Christmas and good Monday morning to all my blogging friends! If you need a break from all the preparations of the season, join us in the Mojo Monday challenge.  Teresa has a really fun sketch with some wide open space that leaves it open for SOOO many possible creations!  I reached my saturation point with Christmas cards, so moved on to a possible Valentine or anniversary card...sentiment pending on the inside of the card. :-)  I rarely use black for a card base, but thought it worked well with these poppies on the hounds tooth panel.  I resurrected my well loved leafy flourish die and popped the flowers in varying heights using foam dots.  I added some shimmer to the veins in the leaves and to the flower centers with a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen.  A few silver sequins by Avery Elle finished it off.
Here's what else I used...
STAMPS: Poppy Birthday (Verve).
PAPER: Yours Truly 6x6 pad by Echo Park, Black, White, Lucky Limeade.
INK: Real Red, Versafine Onyx Black.
ACCESSORIES: Build a Poppy die by Verve; Leafy Flourish die by Cheery Lynn Designs.

For more inspiration, be sure and swing by the blogs of the rest of the mojo makers can check out the first few thumbnails on the Mojo Monday blog to see what they've created!

Oh wow, this is just so beautiful. Love the striking flowers and the gorgeous background against which the flower spray displays so gorgeously.
Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed Christmas.
