Yes I know… shock, horror, I’ve actually created something!
What can I say? Mojo Monday, with its weekly card sketch is a fabulous way to get the creativity back in your fingers when your mind is over-crowded with what you should be doing (sadly I refer to house-work), not with what you want to do! This is this week’s sketch.
This is my interpretation of the sketch. Not that dissimilar from the sketch for a change actually.
The strip of DSP from the Season of Style Pack was sitting on my desk so it immediately became part of the card. Then for the sake of expediency I chose three tags from the Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags. Two of these I punched the circles from before coating the edges with silver glitter and one of the beautiful Frosted Finishes Embellishments. With Versamark I stamped the snow flake from the Warmth & Wonder Stamp Set over the Baked Brown Sugar background.
The remaining tag I added to a white tag I hand-cut from Whisper White cardstock. More glitter was added to the lights on the tags for a little ompf and a large bow made from the Cherry Cobbler 1″ Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon. All the edges were sponged with Crumb Cake.
