#2 To Die For @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings People!
It is time for a new challenge at

And this week’s theme is....
#2 To Die For

This challenge just makes me go ohhh and ahhh just thinking about it!
So of course Mr Mojo and I had fun with this!

 Yes my dears ... this is white on white!
And not a sign of ink distressing ANYWHERE!

 Side view - have popped the square up off the card base.

 Close up of the glittered snowflake and sentiment.

I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this challenge and it called for my new spellbinder Fleur de lis squares.  I am so happy I brought these and crossed them off the want list!  I also splurged and brought some of the Flourish With A Bling Pearls (ssshhh they are a secret)!  These are just delicious and they go a long way (this is just one section of the flourish).  The snowflake is My Favorite Things - Let it snowflake Die cut from glittered white cardstock with a peal brad for the center.  And lastly the sentiment I generated on my computer.  I will confess that I actually did try some ink distressing around the edges, and ... I didn't like to look so I had to re-cut another square and started over again lol!

As always the challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.
