Good Evening, it is stormy outside my window so it is a fantastic time to Mojo Monday.


This was my second attempt at this card, I was determined to do a Christmas card and I ended up abandoning the first one. I think I might try and finish it but I did needed to go in a different direction for this one. I am happy I did, as I really like the way it turned out.

When I struggle it seems I always fall back on my stash of Memory Box DP, it always seems to come through for me. I am drawn to the 6x6 paper packs so maybe that it is easy to mix and match that helps me along.  I left the Christmas bulbs simple and only enhanced small areas with one of my Clear Star Gelly Rollers and small silver bow. I finished with many little diamond gems.
