Mojo Monday 159 - Fireside Christmas

This is a Mojo Monday sketch. I think it's such a versatile sketch. You can do anything with it!
I promise, I am going to try and make this the last Christmas card for a bit. Notice I said try. Hehehe.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my creation:

Dont you just love this set?! I took the time to color the image with markers, so that everything was it's own color. But, if you don't want to take the time to do that, you could easily make a gorgeous card by stamping this in a brown ink, then maybe just color the flames. I embossed the Old Olive layer with a beautiful embossing folder we have called Finial Press. It's great for Christmas cards, or any other occasion card you want to make. I also sponged the embossed layer for some depth and richness. I used our Top Note Die for the little piece at the bottom, it's trimmed up a bit.
Let's see what you can do with this sketch, I'd love to see your creations!
