Mojo 118: Warm Suede Thoughts

I have officially put Christmas behind me and moved on to New Year's. I finally have some free time to play, so I settled in with this week's Mojo Challenge.

It was easy to get started on this one. I wanted to use the metallic prints from the Christmas Cocoa DSP. They pair ever so nicely with the Soft Suede.

I used my new circle nesties for the circles. I must say I love these. I embossed the smaller circle, but I don't have the tan mat yet, so I improvised. I'm hoping the embossing is a little more pronounced when I get it. The snowflake was pretty on its own, but I had to bling it up. I used some small clear rhinestones and they are the perfect touch!

I had the hardest time finding a sentiment to add to the card. I have a Happy New Year's stamp, but it was too small. After going through e-a-c-h stamp set I have, I settled on the sentiment from an oldie but goodie: Like it a Latte. I learned that you never know when you'll pull out that older stamp set ;)

Hope you like it....TFL!
