MOJO 124 & CCC3 Challenge Entry

The theme for Susie & Vikki's Christmas Card Challenge 3 this week was non-traditional. Well I can't tell you how many different things I considered for this but I agreed with Corry and thought it was best that I should use a Prairie Fairy Digital Stamp image for this as she is hosting the prize for this week's entry and she is an awesome friend. In looking through all of her fantastic images I was befuddled and just couldn't wrap my head around the non-traditional Christmas card, other than colors and that didn't seem to be the way I was headed in my thought process (you don't want to go down that scary road).

I decided to mix two non Christmas images into a non-traditional card, I used Sorry Roo and Blooms. Roberta gave us a great photoshop tutorial not that long ago and I used it over and over again for this card. I believe she would be very proud of me, because let me tell you when she first tried to show this method to me, it didn't compute. I took the blooms flower and layered it to look like a poinsettia and then surrounded Roo with it. I then printed 4 other layered blooms of varying sizes to use on the card. I cut a line under Roo's paw to hold the one flower; pop dotted the other little one to look like it fell from the pot by our bad kitty using the pot for a litter box; and the two larger blooms were cut along one side of the petal, bent up toward the center and then the petals were curved under to give it extra dimension. I used pop dots between the flowers as well. I also colored my poinsettias in a non-traditional white with pink highlights.

When I saw the sketch at Mojo Monday 124 this week it lent itself to my plan and wha-la, here is my entry.
