Mojo Monday #473

Mojo 472 photo Mojo472picA.jpg

It's the first Monday of the month which means it is contest time over on the Mojo Monday blog and Julee has provided this lovely sketch for us to work with.

I am on a roll with the Christmas cards and am loving the newly released Beyond Measure and matching Christmas spirit die set.  The inspiration for this card came from Diva Laurie's fabulous card here.   I just love how she created a wreath with one of the sprigs in the set so I used a few of the different ones to create mine.

I adore aqua and brown together and as fate would have it, they are Verve's colours - a match made in heaven :)   I layered the two sprig images, added a dove and then fudged the sketch a bit with my ribbon and bell bow.  Added a touch of silver cording and silver half pearls for a bit of sparkle and called it a card.

All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples.  Should you wish more details on the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.

Hard to believe we are in November already!  Working hard at getting all my Christmas shopping done in the next few weeks so I can enjoy December.   Started this years ago and it has taken so much stress away and allowed me to deeply enjoy the Christmas Season.  Have a fabulous week and look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery!
