Joyeux Noel

Hi friends!  It's Mojo Monday time again and this week is a tall & skinny sketch.

Joyeux Noel by Julee Tilman for Verve Stamps | poeticartistry.blogspot.com | #vervestamps #cardmaking

My card was super quick, as I let the patterned paper do most of the work.  While I was cleaning up my craft area the other day I found a few Christmas paper scraps under a box and set them aside to make sure they got used.  They seemed like the perfect jumping off point for the sketch.

I sponged all of the papers with antique linen and vintage photo distress ink, then stamped the Joyeux Noel sentiment and medium snowflake from Glad Tidings in Versamark and embossed in gold.  The ribbon trims were in some Webster's Pages trim packs I found at the bottom of the closet, and I added a snowflake charm and hot glued a golden ribbon for my final accent.
