FosterDesignHouse: First MOJO challenge...

I know! Another post today. I'll wait for you to pick yourself up off the floor...

I am down to wire on posting this baby for the Mojo Monday Week #87 challenge! Again, I am new to this challenge blog, so we'll see how long I can keep up :)


Paper: Lilly Anna CS, Premium White CS, Merry Wishes SWIC (retired)

Ink: Claret, Chartreuse, & Noir Palettes

Colorant: Prismacolors & mineral oil blending

Other: misc. ribbon, pop dots

I fussy-cut around the snowflake & acid-trip border papers... wait a sec... I fussy cut everything except the base and the circle! OFTLOP! I thought it was going to go together faster, but cutting takes awhile :) I'm going to Stickle the little snowman, but I knew it wouldn't be dry in time to take photos tonight.

It's not as 'put-together' as I like, but it was supposed to be a quickie {that's my story and I'm sticking to it} I should have moved the snowman, circle & frame to the left a little more, but the pop dots are not very forgiving tonight... so it is what it is!



What do you think?

I'm loving your uber-layering on your cards lately. The curly tag looks awesome with that darling snowman. (And I've never heard you can have too many ribbons)
