Mojo Monday

The Mojo Monday sketch #214 this week has a fun banner in the center and was the inspiration for my next project.

I wanted a flower to put in the corner and started by creating a stamped, layered and glittered acetate poinsettia.

I loved the effect of the poinsettia.  The poinsettia (Memory Box - Poinsettia) is stamped on acetate four times using StaZon ink.  I flipped the acetate over and applied cranberry alcohol inks to the back side. Then cut out two full poinsettias and two of the top layers of the poinsettia. Layered, crumpled and applied the Stampendous Halo Silver glitter to the edges.

I then created the background using a mix of the Memory Box Snowfall and Valise papers. 

I wasnt' sure about my flower with the card so I tried out a bundle of holly and pine-cones instead and added a little bird.
 So which do you think?  Holly or poinsettia? 

Here is the lovely sketch:

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful Thursday!
