Mojo Monday 129

I decided to enter a sketch challenge to get my creative juices flowing.  You know how sometimes you just can't seem to create anything that looks good - well that happened to me when I sat down to make my Mother-in-law's birthday card (and that's a card you want to look good (lol)).  So I took a peek at the Mojo Monday blog site and decided to make a card using their sketch for this week.

Here is this week's sketch:

And here is my take on it:
My regular customers will tell you that I'm an "Earth Elements" girl from way back when, so I must confess that most of my cards incorporate these gorgeous colours. 

For this particular card I've used Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White card stock.  The designer series paper is from the Sweet Nothings Simply Scrappin' kit (love it!!).  I've used the Cheep Talk stamp set and coloured the image using the Ruby Red, Old Olive and Choc Chip markers.  I've also used a small piece of Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon and "scrunched" a small flower together using the 3/4" circle punch (as per my instruction on my previous entry).

So, if you feel you've lost your "mojo", why don't you visit the Mojo Monday blog for some inspiration too.

Happy Birthday Lois!  I hope you like your card.

This is really great! I am in a very Pink Pirouette mood lately and am loving EVERYTHING made with it!
