Unto Us

Hi friends!  Happy Monday!  It's time for another Mojo sketch to jumpstart your week and since it's the first Monday of the month it's CONTEST time!  Woohoo!  We've got some Verve prizes up for grab, so be sure to sneak a little stamping time in this week to play along with our challenge!

I just love this Lost & Found Christmas paper and decided to go with an elegant feel for this traditional Christmas card.  A little gold embossing always seems to up the elegance factor, so I embossed both the sentiment from Richly Blessed and the Curvy Cross plain jane in gold detail embossing powder.  The cross is cut out with the Cross Die Set and I added some layers of shimmer gold cardstock cut with scallop Nestabilities for even more shimmery goodness.  The background is embossed with a Snowflakes embossing folder and I finished off with a seam binding bow and some shiny gold pearls.  All in all, it was a super quick card to make, and I know my parents (who I had in mind when I made it) will love it.

Hope you have a fabulous start to your week.  Be sure to check out the Mojo Monday blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with for the sketch, then play along for a chance to win some prizes!
