Hi friends! It's the first Monday of a new month and that means it's contest time over at Mojo Monday. Play along for a chance to win a Verve set of your choosing. I chose a classic and simple sketch for this busy time of year. I hope it inspires you to get a little crafting done this week.
It's also our last Mojo sketch of 2016, as the design team is on holiday break through the end of the year. We hope you have the happiest of holidays.
For my card, I used this sweet little reindeer from Jolly Jingles that's been sitting on my desk for a little while. He's stamped a few different times and fussy cut and popped up in pieces and colored up with Copic markers. I added just a hint of sparkle to his antlers, and cut the bottom most layer out with the coordinating die from the Winter Friends Die Set.
He's hanging out on a deckled rectangle die cut that I sponged with antique linen distress ink. My horizontal piece is a piece of my favorite striped ribbon from May Arts, threaded through a big wooden snow flake and tied in a knotted bow. I stamped the Christmas Joy sentiment from Beyond Measure onto the edge of an old dictionary page, then cut out and tucked behind the snowflake, accenting with a teeny star rhinestone. The background papers are from the Christmas Basics paper pad by recollections and I used a Flourished Trim Die as the divider.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful week. If you've got a moment, be sure to head on over to the Mojo Monday blog to see what the other designers are sharing today.

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
