This week's challenge over at Catch the Bug is ANYTHING GOES. And since Christmas is approaching - quickly - I took the opportunity to make a Christmas card.

This image was colored up with Promarkers and fussy cut. I attached it to a Hero Arts die cut wreath- - brown paper, white gesso and frantage was used. I used some left over papers to punch the pine branches and also added some old poinsettia stickers. I mounted it all to die cut Spellbinders frames and a snow embossed background.

I got back from holiday on Sunday, but Mr Mojo got delayed. I haven't caught up on all of your blogs yet, but I'll get it to it, I'm still around:)

This card is also for:

Hi Pia, welcome back on blogland! Hope that you have received my e-mail about your winning on a challenge, in time to claim your prize.
I think that the gesso and the frantage give a fab touch to your wreath! Love the embossed base layer with falling snow, finally also I have bought one similar, it was in my wishlist by age! The blue layer under the stocking gives a sweet look to the card, so "home and family", love it!

Wonderful layered look, I know some of the ingredients! :) Great job putting together so different elements with fantastic results.

Mimi said...

Nothin' I don't love about this. You ALWAYS make a complicated layout look just right, with all of the elements compiled seamlessly into one cohesive card! You are the bomb!

Wow this turned out gorgeous!! I really love your row of stocking over the wreath panel! Wonderful texture and design! HUGS :)
