Mojo Monday Contest– Season’s Greetings

I hope your Monday has started the week off right!  Mine certainly has; with a new yoga mat, commitment to exercise every day (oh boy…), and a Mojo Monday contest to enter, this week started at full speed.  Whew!

So, every Monday one of my favorite blogs posts a new sketch of a card layout.  It’s a really great way to get my mojo going (get it!?) if I’m feeling stuck and need some inspiration.  Anyway, the first Monday of each month card makers everywhere have a chance to enter their creations (based on that week’s sketch) and win a set of stamps!  Here’s this week’s layout:https://papermelodys.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/mojo270sketch.gif?w=300

Fortunately, you can use different shapes, borders, etc., so it was pretty easy to make this into a Christmas card!

Here’s what I came up with:

The card measures 5″ x 6.5″ and features poinsettias that I made using my various flower punches.  The sentiment and flowers are popped up over cream, red and green paper from a Christmas pad by K&Company, and to finish off the look I used my sewing machine to do some decorative stitching.  Overall, I’m really pleased with the way this card turned out!  Here are a couple more pictures for your enjoyment… 🙂

Here’s the inside. I’ve added a couple small green rhinestones to the center of the flowers since taking this picture 🙂

There are a couple slip-ups in the stitching which drive my perfectionist self nuts, but oh well! Let me know what you think, and keep having a great day 🙂
