Ahh, a sketch challenge with lots of layers!

Hey all, I'm popping in with a card I've made based on the
newly resurrected Mojo Monday #502! I'm so
happy that Julee brought it back, because
sketches with lots of layers are my thing,
and there doesn't seem to be many left out there in blogland.

I may have basically cased her card, (thank you for the inspiration Julee!),
 but I've put my own spin on it. Check it:

and the inside:

Lots of stash shopping with this one. And can you believe that
poinsettia stamp was just inked for the first time? (since 2012!)
Really, the only thing newish on this card is the twig dies, which I 
purchased at the beginning of the year. (or the end of last year).

That's it for now. I'm going to go get my jammies on
and relax with my hubby and fur baby now.
Have a good evening!

  1. Mojo Monday perfection ... love that stunning wreath ... so very glad you shared your blooms with us at Jingle Belles.

  2. This is so beautiful! Love how your coloring on the poinsettias just pop. All the little details are perfect. So glad you could join me for Mojo Monday!

  3. Hi there Chris: WOW!! what a gorgeous card, it's a layering masterpiece my friend.
    Love all the awesome DSP papers you chose and, of course, the amazing Poinsettia flowers so beautifully colored and arranged.
    Thank you for playing along with us at RETRO RUBBER and THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope you come and play again next time.
    Sending hugs.

  4. Wow this is gorgeous, I am so happy to know Mojo Monday i live again, I loved that challenge so I'm on it like (stealing from Donna) a fat kid on a smartie (the Canadian smartie the chockolate one with the candy coating)

  5. Gorgeous card Chris. Love the layers. No Christmas is complete until you make at least one card with poinsettia's. Love them.

  6. Oh my! How could those gorgeous poinsettias have been uninked so long! I'll bet they get used again - they're awesome! Love, love your layered creation - each layer adds something to the overall effect rather that competing with each other - that's some skill! Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.

  7. Wow, what a stunning card and great use of the sketch. Isn't if fun to use a stamp that has sat unused and love the outcome? Thank you for playing along with us at Retro Rubber!

  8. Gorgeous card. Love all the layers and pretty poinsettias. Great take on the sketch and on Julee's card.

  9. Gorgeous, I love all your layers and the pretty poinsettias and greenery! Very seasonal and colored in such a lovely way! Thanks for sharing this with us at Retro Rubber this week!

  10. OHhhhhhhhhh how i LOVE this! my favorite part is how you did basically CASE the mojo card... and yet it's still totally YOU and very stash centric! thanks for helping us celebrate festive foliage at JINGLE BELLES! ♥♥♥ (ps: YES, it's awesome to see a "new" non-CAS challenge lol! i mean i looooooooooove CAS but i cannot do it to save my life... :)

  11. I LOVE Mojo Monday!! A stunning card, that embodies the sketch perfectly and I love the warm Christmassy tones. Thanks for joining us over at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
