Mojo Monday 269 Neutral Christmas

I was inspired by the circles and neutral palette at The Shabby Tea Room to make this Christmas card using the Mojo Monday sketch for this week. Here's their inspiration.

My card uses a Kraft cardstock scalloped square cut with Cricut Art Philosophy. I used two different bamboo colored patterned papers from CTMH Mistletoe for the background. I stuck with Colonial White, Bamboo, Desert Sand and Cocoa papers (scissor distressed), ink and embellishments.   I loved the shine of the glass and pewter plates in the inspiration photo, so I used shiny gold ribbon, sparkle flourish, a pearl surrounded by silver, and a silver glitter snowflake that I created.

I made my own snowflake using silver glitter glue squeezed onto cardstock with a vertical line crossed with an "x." Then I added an extra dot near the tips. After it dried I fussy cut it to remove most of the white paper. I attached it to a Prima flower on a small doily by Little Yellow Bicycle.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Mojo Monday 269 - sketch
The Shabby Tea Room - circle, shine, neutral colors plus ribbon
2 Sisters #19 - Christmas sparkle
