still shapin' up over here!

or, more accurately, over at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ where we've eschewed the ordinary rectangular or square card for something more exotic, and the reader's gallery is already pretty FAB♥U♥LOUS!!! speaking (most immodestly!) of cool cards, here's mine:

(patterned paper: pink paislee, basic grey, sei, making memories; die cut ornaments: crate paper; chipboard word: my mind's eye; rub-on sentiment: tpc studio; ink: color box; circle punch: ek success; deco scissors + gems: michaels; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape)
i was pretty excited that it's mojo monday's "round or square" week, and immediately chose "round" of course! i had to flip the sketch horizontally at the last minute when it turned out i just could not quiiiiiiite fit my two ornaments over the tall "Ch" at the beginning of "Christmas", but i think it works pretty well.

And now why not jump on over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ where miss stephanie has also prepared a fabulous new card for your delight?!
