Mojo Monday 103 Christmas Card...

We had a fantastic weekend here in Southern Ontario - the sun was out and the temperature was perfect - not too hot and not too cold, needless to say, I didn't spend any time in my craft space creating... but I did check out the Mojo Monday sketch for this week and decided to sit down and create after the boys went to bed!
I was inspired by a card Vicki W. posted on her blog . I used my nestabilities to create my scalloped circle and then used the cut pieces to "layer" my trees... what a fun technique - I am definitely incorporating this technique on my Christmas Tree hunting layout for this year!

The vertical rectangles behind the main image reminded me of Christmas Trees for some reason - which is the main inspiration for my card. I tried to add a sentiment to the rectangular "white" space in the sketch overtop of my trees, but it was too much and you couldn't see the detail in the trees, so I decided to add my sentiment to the bottom of the card. The card uses papers from the new CTMH Jingle Level 2 My Reflections Kit, Olive Cardstock and the following CTMH Stamps; Evergreen (D1315)and Shining Star (D1320).


Let me know what you think!
