Peace on Earth ~ Mojo Monday

Greetings, my dear blog friends! Today's card is for Mojo Monday and it's contest week!! I knew I wanted to use this little birdie on my card and have a "Peace on Earth" sentiment to go with him. I leafed through my new patterned paper packs and stopped at this lovely snowflake piece from Cosmo Cricket. I love how whimsical it is :) A few buttons in the bottom balance the lower quarter of the card and some bling make the snowflakes sparkle. I had to laugh today as I drove out to our inservice workshop. My colleagues and I saw these white looking shapes in the river and weren't sure if they were pieces of ice or birds!! LOL Turned out they were swans!! I guess they don't head south in search of warmer weather. Yes, my weather widget is working and it's cold here!! BRRR!!! No snow, just really cold, windy weather. I hope you are staying warm wherever you are :D If you have time, join us at Mojo Monday. You can win a Verve stamp set if you are one of the 7 finalists :) Have a wonderful Tuesday :)

Very pretty! Love the kraft with the teal. Great details... the stitching, the birdie and the "buttons and bling"! It's a good thing I ordered those circle nesties... there are a lot of circles on this sketch ;)!

Great mojo card, Maureen. I freaked at the circles when I first saw it and then had to laugh when I remembered Amber's comment to Kristina to "embrace the circles, make them your friend" LOL! Still working on mine - will take a few days to make it work.

Love the BG DP. Great colours and the bird is perfect. Well done!

Very pretty! Cute bird and I really liked how you embossed the kraft circle behind him. Iam staying warm in my house, soon we will head out into the snow we got yesterday. About 8 in, very good snow fall for us!

OMG this is SUPER! I love what you've done with the sketch - the sentiment and dove were just made for each other! I really wanna play with this sketch but will I ever find the time!?!
Staying warm here indoors - I think 4c is cold so I dunno how I'd cope with minus 10 LOL!
Keep warm!
