Christmas Mojo

I can't believe it's been almost a week since I've posted a card! I've just been super busy and the weather here has been so beautiful that when I do have some extra time, I want to be out enjoying it. I'm back with another Christmas card that fits four challenges - well actually five if you count Susan's Christmas in July challenge on the CK message board. The other four are: Mojo Monday, Cute Card Thursday, Cupcake Craft Challenge and Digital Tuesday Challenge. The latter three are all Christmas theme challenges, and the Mojo sketch fit my image perfectly. It's shown at the bottom of this post.

I've been following the Digital Tuesday challenge blog for awhile, but this is my first time to submit a card. I am very new to using digital stamps, but so far I am really enjoying it. The image I chose is called "Not Even a Mouse" and it's from Mo's Digital Pencil. Maurie (Mo) has just recently started creating and selling digital illustrations. I just happened on her blog a week or so ago through a link on another blog that I follow, and I fell in love with her work. All of her illustrations have tons of charm and personality.

Above is a close up of the image. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope it doesn't take me a whole week to make another card!
Image: Not Even a Mouse (Mo's Digital Pencil)

Embellishments: Circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities (Spellbinder); border punch (Fiskars); ribbon, buttons
