Mojo Monday

Check out this great sketch that Julee has designed for this week's Mojo Monday Challenge! It's another great one and we hope you will play along with us! Here is my take on it - going with a gingham background and rustic style wreath stamp from Verve's Holiday Greetings set in traditional Christmas colors!

I brushed a wee bit of brown chalk over the wreath to have it look like a grapevine wreath...otherwise the image was colored with Copics.  I'm sure the berries shouldn't be green, but I needed green in the wreath (plus I've seen green berries before) - lol!  Clear Wink of Stella brush marker was added for a little shimmer to the stars.
Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Holiday Greetings (Verve).
PAPER: Garden Green, Real Red (SU), Trim the Tree paper stack (SU), X-Press It Blending Card.
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black.
DIES: Stitched square and border by Lil' Inker Designs; Holly by Reverse Confetti; Stitched Fishtail Flags Die-Namics by MFT.

I have to admit I'm struggling with this sketch but you sure nailed it. Everything just fits perfectly on your card.
