Mojo Inspired Sparkle

It's the Eve of Christmas Eve and things are heating up here at Casa Martins. It's icy cold outside but we've got the fire going inside. We spent the last hour or so rearranging our tree....again. Yep the little minx is turning out to be quite the tree climbing ball-basher. (Get that image out of your head! LOL) I have half a dozen broken baubles to try and put together, bits of tree to throw into the fire and somehow reclaim our a dining table which has all but disappeared under wrapping papers, ribbons and unwrapped presents.... I have never been this disorganised. So what do I do?  I make a card, of course!

Here it is:

This really is a super simple card. I'm using pale blue CS to make this 4-1/2"  square card.  The greeting and image is from Clearly Bessotted's Merry Little Christmas set. I stamped the greeting with Memento Blue Danube. The snowflakes are die cut using SB's Create a Flake 5, lightly inked with TH's Broken China for a hint of colour. I coloured the snowman with Promarkers and cut him out with CB's coordinating die collection

Using Versamark ink, I stamped some snowflakes on the background and added a blue bling on the biggest flake. And for texture I cut out some sparkly white fun-foam to make a snowy scene. I really didn't have the time nor the emotional strength to fuss about with buttons and ribbons etc, so this will have to do.  It's my interpretation of this week's Mojo sketch.

I hope you'll join me and my snowman at these challenges:
