Good Monday Afternoon!

It's time for another Mojo Monday Challenge!

What is not to love about this sketch? It can be simple, complex and anywhere in between! I stayed fairly true to the sketch, which is not all that unusual for a MOJO sketch since I love them so much! I started out in a completely different direction and just didn't like where I was headed. So I stopped, took a deep breath and started over. LOL!

The colors I chose are Kraft, So Saffron, Taken with Teal, Ballet Blue and Whisper White. These happened to pile up on my desk last week and I just left them because I thought it was a fun color combo I could use. Initially I stamped my Saffron panel, then didn't like it so went with the Texturz Plate and embossed it. So glad I did, even if it is hard to capture in a photo.

I also embossed the Taken with Teal panel with the same plate, just opposite side. Finally, I stamped my main image using Ballet Blue ink (refill on my next order!) and Say it With Scallops stamp set. Punched out the normally square image with my circle punch, added some ribbon and jumbo brads and voila!

So what do you think? Leave me a comment and I will pick someone randomly (by closing my eyes and pointing probably- sorry, not real fancy around here) to send this to. Don't worry, I won't write in it- that way you can send it on to brighten someone else's day!

Also, don't forget that TOMORROW is the last day to SALE-A-BRATE! Be sure to place your order here and be eligible for not only a FREE SAB product, but also a FREE Idea Book & Catalog!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great card - I love your jumbo brad idea. Would never have thought of that - I guess that's what makes these challenges great is seeing others' interpretations

  2. hey, girlie! glad to see your card today (I looked for it twice, no pressure ;) this is really nice. I like the clean lines and simpleness (is that a word?) of it.

  3. Oh Kristin, I just love your blog and checking out your cards. I think everyday that I am going to steal all of your ideas and then... I don't but someday I will.

  4. Loved how you punched around the brads. Really fun accent. Great job on the mojo sketch.

    It's a good life!
