MOJO Monday Berry Special

I created this card for the MOJO Monday week 70 sketch. I did not plan on this using Christmas colors but I think it turned out all right.

The stamps are from a retired Stampin Up set called Knobbly Gnomes. Of course I used my Copics to color him...
Strawberry - R27 shaded with R39
Hat - E11 shaded with E15
Coat - E35 shaded with E37
Shoes and leaves- G21, ties are E37
Flesh - E01 shaded with E02
Bow - R22 shaded with R24

The flowers were inspired by a card on my friend Sheila's blog, she made the most gorgeous daisies. After punching out the 3 sizes of daisies, I embossed them with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and sanded the embossing to reveal the white core of the paper.

I think I went a little bit overboard with the 3 colors of DP, it is a little much. I don't think the card is balanced, the flowers are too large for the card but I thought I would share it with you anyway. An example of what NOT to do, lol. Thanks for stopping by.
