Joyeux Noel

Welcome to another week! The weekend flew by and now it's time to start the week off with a Mojo Monday sketch. This one's a sketch I designed earlier this year for a Verve release and made a few modifications to for this week's Mojo 169. I thought the horizontal panel in the sketch was a perfect fit for the frame in Fabulous You and since the snowflakes in Glad Tidings coordinate with that frame, I thought I'd pair them together on my card.

I started by stamping the frame and snowflake in Cherry cobbler, then trimming out and rounding the corners of the frame and aging with a little Antique Linen distress ink. The snowflake is popped up over a couple cream circles embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and edged with a bit of Champagne Glitz Stickles.

The papers are from the Bo Bunny Noel collection, and I did a little faux stitching around the vertical panel. I accented with a bit of cherry cobbler seam binding ruffled across the panel and a super sparkly gold star. Then I finished off with the Joyeux Noel sentiment from Glad Tidings.

Okay, that's all from me this fine Monday morning.  If you can believe it, I'm STILL trying to get over that no good, very bad cold.  This year's strain is a doozy!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous start to your week!
