Mojo Monday Challenge 112 Merry Christmas!

Today I went to work on a card order that needs to get delivered by the end of the month. Why? We're moving and I want all orders completed before the heavy duty packing begins :-) I have worked on cards for the past few days, but none were meant for challenges, so when time permits, I'll upload them and show them on the blog. There were two packages delivered today; one from Papertrey Ink and one from Scrap-Mart, which contained the Spellbinders nested poinsettias. I got to work using the poinsettias dies because Sherry Cheever has a terrific tutorial on her blog posted a few weeks ago using snowflakes dies. If you have some time, please stop by her blog and see her beautiful watercolored poinsettia card that is posted for today. Now back to why I'm writing :-) I wanted to participate in the weekly Mojo Monday sketch challenge. If you look closely, you'll see that the poinsettia was colored with SU! Bravo Burgandy while still in the die, stamped with Versamark, and then colored with Pearl Ex powder to give it the shiny finish; it was sealed with lacquer to keep the powder in place. It was layered with two sided tape and attached to the card with a foam dot.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look; I really appreciate your time.


Recipe for today's challenge:

Stamps: inside sentiment is from SU!

Ink: Tuxedo Black, Versamark

Paper: White (Papertrey Ink), wine (Bazzill), dp (Bo Bunny Believe/Noel)

Accessories: Green Leaf ribbon (PTI), wine (unknown), half pearl (SU! Hodgepodge), dies (Spellbinders), circle paper punch (SU!), Pearl Ex powders

Your card is beautiful. I will have to stop by Sherrys to check out her Poinsettia. Although I think your poinsettia is beautiful. It really caught my eye.

Good Luck with your move.
