Two Challenges in One Card

Sorry that I've been MIA, I had a great Thanksgiving, spent it with family and friends we had a delicious dinner, and the rest of the week I went out with my brother and with friends, so I had a great time. So now I'm back in Sac and we only have one week of school and then it's finals week so I've been studying and playing some last minute catch up, I have two essays due next week, two tests next week and then two finals and then it's vacation time again until the end of January, so during vacation I will have lots and lots of time to play with my cards, which Im really excited about. But for now I bring you this card that I made while taking a break from writing an essay. Enjoy!!

For this card I put two challenges together into one card, just like my title says. I did a TCP Tuesday inspiration challenge and a Mojo Monday challenge together .

Here are the two challenges...

And here is what I came up with. For the Mojo challenge we were supposed to embrace the white space but I didn't read that until I was done with the card...whops!!!

Stamps: Hero Arts Grand Snowflack, Hero Arts Holiday Cheer Messages
Paper: Michaels Christmas Slab
Ink: ColorBox Chalk Chestnut Roan
Accessories: Rhinestone Stickers (Michaels), Snowflake (Martha Stewart), Embossed Snowflake Border (Martha Stewart),brown grosgrain

And if you want to play along here are the guidelines for each challenge.

TCP Tuesday Inspiration
How to enter: Use the sketch to create a project and then post a link to your creation in the comments of this post.

Deadline: Monday, December 8 at Noon Mountain Time (There's a clock on the sidebar with the official Poetic Artistry time).

Prize: This is a judged contest, so my two favorite entries will each win their choice of any Verve Stamps set (up to $24)!

The winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 10. Sound like fun? Well, let's get started! If you upload your cards to Splitcoast Stampers or Paper Craft Planet, please use keyword Mojo63 (no space between Mojo and 63) so they're all together. As always, you can use any stamps or products your heart desires. Just have fun and show me how mojolicious you are! I can't wait to see everyone's entries!
