Mojo Monday #268

2012 Faves

Welcome back to another Mojo Monday sketch.  This week's sketch is brought to us by Mojo Maker Carole Burrage.

For some reason when I first saw the sketch, I immediately thought of using two trees in lieu of the circles.  Think the overwhelming desire to use my new to me Verve Christmas tree die had a lot to do with it wink, wink.  So, I fudged the sketch  just a teensy bit...okay kind of a lot, but I love the outcome!

This fabulous snowflake SEI paper was my starting point.  Love blue and brown together and silver became my accent colour.  A bit of bling on the falling snowflakes, some background "snow" created by my Swiss Dots embossing folder and two silver bells created my winter wonderland on a card.

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 hope you can sneak in some time to play along with this sketch - especially all the American Mojo Monday fans who may need a tiny break from all the Thanksgiving Day preparations!

Trying to catch up on blog surfing and commenting since coming home from a week at my dad's and no computer (these ole eyes don't let me do a lot of commenting on my iPhone - lol). You asked about the Fishtail Flags that I use a lot; there are 7 different sizes in a pack called Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX and I use them ALL the time! They are a "must have" if you don't have them already! I totally LOVE what you've done with this mojo sketch! The ribbon with jingle bells really accents it well!
