Mojo Monday with a "Pretty" Girl!




Good Monday Morning Everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine was great! My husband and I attended the USMC Birthday Ball Saturday evening, which was spectacular as always. Yesterday I went with a group of friends to see "The Secret Life of Bees". It was soooo gooood!!! If you haven't seen it, make a point to; but definitely don't go without any tissues. You many even need a whole box because it's a definite tear jerker, and I'm not talking the "get choked up, cry a few tears" kind of crying. I'm talking "blubbering, bawling, sniffing" crying!
Before I left to go to the movie, however I checked the mail and lo and behold my new Paper Pretties Stamp of the Month had arrived. Yea!! I took one look at her and knew I couldn't wait to get use her today. I knew that I wanted to use the traditional red and green Christmas Colors; but I also wanted to incorporate a couple of softer colors as well, so I ended up with Ballet Blue, Garden Green, Pink Pirouette, and Riding Hood Red. This is also my card for this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I had to adjust the sketch just a bit in order to fit Sophia on there; but I think it works nonetheless. I used a retired Christmas Tree wheel in Garden Green for the top of the card. For the textured background behind Sophia I used Pink Pirouette, Garden Green sponged on white card stock and then sprayed with water and then used Ruby Red and Ballet Blue over it.I stamped Sophia in Close to Cocoa and then filled in her in with aqua painters and inks. I paper-pieced her skirt from a piece of Christmas DSP that I had.
Ok, so that's all for me today. I'm off to eat some lunch and work on those Christmas cards! Have a fabulous day everyone and thanks for stopping by!
