Mojo Morning Stretch

Boy, it's good to be back in the studio and just spending a little time creating.

There's nothing better than a good sketch challenge to get the creative juices flowing! When I saw this morning's sketch from Mojo Monday, I knew that I wanted to FINALLY put some ink on this set and see where it went!

I am sticking to a monochromatic color pattern for this one and oh how it's putting me in the Christmas mood! I grabbed a cup of eggnog flavored coffee and quickly got to work. (eggnog coffee sounds yucky, but it's surprisingly delicious!). Although there's a lot of layers to this one, it went together in a few minutes.

So first, some measurements:
Base: Whisper white 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Cherry cobbler 4 x 5 1/4", then embossed with the big shot
Layer 3: Cherry cobbler ribbon! (this is double sided so you can go polka dots or not)
Layer 4: whisper white 3 1/8" x 2 1/8"
Layer 5: Frostwood Lodge Designer series paper 3 x 2"
Layer 6: Cherry cobbler 2 1/8" x 3 1/4"
Layer 7: Whisper White 2 x 3 1/8"
Layer 8: Sentiment on Whisper white, punched with the XL oval punch.
