52 CCT / Mojo 310

It must be the weekend because here I am sitting at the computer checking out card
challenge blogs.  It's been a stressful week at work and this helps me to not think
about all of that and just get lost in my own world.  So I did a card to cover 2
challenges today.  I like the color combo at the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown
challenge this week and decided to use the sketch from Mojo Monday 310.

Here's the color combo...

the sketch...

and my interpretation.

I'm really getting my money's worth out of this Spellbinders poinsettia die set.  I guess
poinsettias are my main theme for Christmas cards this year.  I inked the edges and
veins of the poinsettia with red ink. I also seem to be doing a lot of of dry embossing too. 
This time I used  Cuttlebug's dotted swiss embossing folder.  The greeting is from a Hero 
Arts Christmas set of stamps.  Thanks for taking a look!


  1. Judy, this is amazingly gorgeous! LOVE the CAS feel and the fabulous texture! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT! :)

  2. This is beautiful Judy. I love how you have inked the poinsettia and the embossing shows everything off so well.
