Merry Mojo Mittens!


I wanted to make a card for this week's Colour Q challenge, as the colours are just SO gorgeous! I combined it with this week's Mojo Monday sketch and came up with this:

I was fortunate enough to win this Gina K set (Winter Mittens) recently over at Stamp TV so I wanted to break it out and play. I stamped the mitten twice - once with Tempting Turqouise and once with Pacific Point. I cut out the cuff bit of the Pacific Point mitten and layered it over the Turqouise one. The layers are cut with nestabilities. The greeting is from SU's Season of Joy (my all-time fave Christmas set). The layers underneath are a combination of a stamp and dies from Papertrey. I added some glitter to the mitten for some sparkle, as well as some buttons that matched Soft Suede from my (rather large..!) button collection. Around the sentiment layer I added some tiny self-adhesive pearls (new in the SU catty). The ribbon is some Pacific Point ribbon my Mum got me from Australia last year. The Pacific Point and Wild Wasabi papers are from the current DSP colour collections - the Turqouise piece is a retired DSP.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll try to be back a little more regularly to post my creations, but please bear with me in the meantime!
