Christmas Joy

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch.  This week's sketch is simple and just perfect for Christmas cards.

For my card, I stamped the birdie from the new Christmas Joy on crumb cake, then colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I also used a white pencil around the edge of the circle and my sentiment rectangle, for a snowy frame.  The sentiment is stamped in black, then I framed both stamped pieces in black.  The soft sky layer is torn, then stamped in soft sky with the Christmas Wishes sentiment and I wrapped a little black twine around it, then layered my stamped pieces over it.  A little embossing and a rounded corner on the card base finishes things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!
