Mojo Monday #266 *Merry Christmas Card*

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend! 
I was lucky enough to have a 4 day weekend so I decided to get an early start on this month's Mojo Monday Card. This sketch was made by Julee Tilman...thank you! 


So I was in the mood to get a few Christmas cards going ( Im usually late getting started ) lol
I have had these Pion Papers from a while back when I designed for Scrap That! I really like the vintage feeling to them and wanted to get them back out for today's card. 
This past Saturday, I went to the card convention in Mesa AZ and I won the "under the sea" card contest! woo hoo! happy dance! I really was hoping to make the top three and I ended up winning 1st prize! That was $100.00 in free convention money....love it! Of course you had to use it during the weekend and I wasnt planning to go on Sunday....easy to do very quickly I found out! lol
Hence some of my New diecuts from Memory Box and Cherry Lynn Designs are on here. 


I usually try to follow the sketch to an exact "T" However, I really wanted to use the "merry christmas" stamp that I bought years ago from Heartfelt Creations. The font is so beautiful. 


The 2 first photos the cream papers look a bit white, but as you can see here the papers are really cream and match my ribbon perfectly. I added the CLD "holly" and a poinsettia from HC to really show off the ribbon. There also is a little tiny bit of baby's breathe that I bought at the convention in a nice size bag for only $1.00. I should have bought more? :( Next time...


Hope you have a great week! 
Thanks for stopping by! 
xoxo
