Concord Christmas CC313 & Mojo181


I haven’t felt too creative here lately…..but I did want to try to do a Christmas card this week.  When I saw the color challenge at SCS, the cool colors of Concord Crush, Bashful Blue and Pear Pizzazz seemed to be perfect for a wintery card, and although I am not thrilled with the outcome, it will be a good addition for my stash. 


Of all the new In Colors, this purple shade is not one of my favorites, but I have to admit that I do like it combined with these other hues.  I glittered my snowflake with DD; added some stamped white snowflakes to the PP panel and embossed the Bashful Blue DP panel.  I forgot I had these doilies in my stash, and they seemed to follow the lacy pattern of the snowflake as well.  The sentiment is from a retired SU set called Tiny Talk.   The sketch is from Mojo Monday #181:

When I saw the Mojo sketch, I had to scratch my head - that was a real hard one but you nailed it girl. It's just great. Love those colors together too. How did Close to My Heart manage to sign Cassidy up so fast - giggle. She's such a cutie!
