Mojo Monday #267

2012 Faves

 This week's sketch is brought to us by Julee and the large focal panel provides all sorts of options.

Continuing on my Christmas card binge, I pulled out some of my favorite MME papers which I loaded up on last year after Christmas when they were on sale.

Just love the sentiments and fonts from Verve's Richly Blessed set and selected this one for the card.  Since Christmas and Easter go hand in hand, I over stamped the cross in gold to make the connection and to add a little something to the sentiment panel.  Being that I am still smitten by my Martha Stewart jumbo snowflake punch, I just had to use it again.  Some red and gold twine as well as some faux stitching and a few gold bells finished things off nicely.

You can check out all the challenge details over on the  Mojo Monday blog and also get a chance to view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples!  Should you wish more details on their cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.


Have a fabulous day and enjoy playing with this great sketch!
