A new week…

It’s finally sunny!! Yippee!! We’ve had such crummy weather over the past week – it’s so nice to see the sun. Why did I decide to make a Christmas card? I don’t have an answer for that one! Here is my submission for today’s Mojo Monday #97 Challenge:


My card base is Taken with Teal and I layered Ruby Red on top of that. I used Holiday Lounge DSP on top of the Ruby Red layer. I added Riding Hood Red ribbon around that to tie the patterned paper together. I stamped the ornaments (Gina K. Designs) with Basic Black on Gina K. 120 lb. card stock. I stamped them again onto Taken with Teal and Ruby Red and cut them out and adhered them. I used circle nestabilities and popped that up. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set. I added large red brads and the photo corner punch according to the sketch. Thank for having a look.

    Those hanging ornaments go so well with the dsp. Great choice.
