Mojo 218: Christmas Greetings

Let's see how this goes for my inaugural competitive card post!  (-- I don't mean the card--let's see if I can get it to even post properly!)

This was an accidental card, the "card that was never meant to be!"  It started out as a "Feliz Navidad" card for my best friend's family in Mexico, and it sat on my craft trunk for days with no love from me... just wasn't feelin' it. (In fact, it was like the "misfit" card, largely made up of unloved scraps, and bits and pieces of projects unfinished, and now used for unitended purposes!) So when I saw the new Mojo sketch (which I also wasn't "feelin'" at the time), I thought, "Well, let's see how skilled I am!  It's a challenge!"

So here it is, built upon 60# parchment in greytone.  The gold mat at back has been in the stash forever, unknown make.  Hot-red houndstooth/grid is "Pretty Girl" by MME, So Sophie line (LOVE IT).  Flowers are Prima (I think... I dump my tubes into a bin-- sorry!).  Leaves are by Recollections.  Sheet music and red wool yarn inherited.  I typed the greeting with just Edwardian, then printed it on parchment in brown, then cut out by hand and chalked edges with ColorBox creamy brown.  "Pearls" are just Scribbles white mist puff paint!
