Card For Mojo Monday Challenge!

Over at Poetic Artistry there is a sketch challenge that I really liked so I thought I would whip something up. Here is my first try, since it is almost time to send out Christmas cards that's a good place to start. Next will be a birthday card, I'm always in need of those!
To Make this first the resist technique was used for the snowflake piece and stonewashed and denim Adirondack inks were sponged on. The circles were cut using a Coluzzle then snowflake stickers were used as accents.
Recipe
stamps- snowflake by Stampendous, Joy by Flourishes
ink- Adirondack, VersaMark
paper- glossy white, black iris (it's really a dark blue)
plus- snowflake stickers by Stampendous, clear embossing powder, silver ribbon

Okay now for a weather update. We are having Really strong Santa Ana winds about 50+ mph, talk about a bad hair day! Tonight is trash night so that means our trash cans will be at the end of the street tomorrow, if I was smart I would spray paint our address on them. There have been two fires within 1-2 miles of the house but luckily they were small and put out quickly.
We haven't decorated for Halloween yet and it might be a while before we can do that, I always hate loosing decorations.
Have a nice week and thank you for stopping by :)

Fires and Wind are sure not a good mix! Hope you stay safe and don't lose your trash can! Painting the address on it is a fantastic idea!

Days like that are great for hiding inside and stamping all day! :)

Great card - I love all the sparkle, and that resist technique looks fantastic!
hugs, Jami

Beautiful card! Hope you keep being safe from the fires and that your trash can is not missing. Mine is chained to a post in front of my entry way (I live farther back). The bad thing is when people throw things in it. They go to the bottom and we can't get them out without doing 1,000 things first.

Golly jeepers hold on to your hat -- and your garbage cans! We get those kinds of winds here in Montana. I hate to go out and take all the plants off the stands and make sure everything that could be whipped up by the wind is pulled in-- it's a pain! I hope you stay safe from the fires! That is a scary deal!

Your card is a beauty! That resist technique just makes your card pop!!

Take care!!
