Mojo Monday...I think I'm hooked!

Yes, it's another Mojo Monday! I must admit, I'm hooked on the challenges at the blog http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/ . It pushes me to use papers, stamps, and other embellishment that I just haven't been inspired to use! Not to mention they give you the card lay out! Sometimes that is the hardest part.
I was a SU! demo, as previously mentioned, and I am glad I have opened my horizons to new possibilities in crafting. I find myself looking forward to the Mojo challenge and trying new products I find all over the place~!

Staying true to my roots, I am using SU! card stock, stamps and ribbon. At Christmas, I found this awesome product which if you haven't used them, you should really try them out! They are pearls with adhesive backs. They come in an array of sizes and in rhinestones too! I have seen them used many times. After Christmas, I thought I'd never use them again. Wrong! If you look closely, you will find I have dotted the flowers on the DSP papers and added them them to top. (really hard to see in the bigger picture) I switched the layout a little because once I stamped the French Script BG stamp, I noticed the words were going the wrong way!

I thought this would be a good time to just go with it! (not typical of me) So I layed out the card, several times, without any satisfaction! The harder I tried to make the French Script work going the wrong direction, the more twitchy I got! :) So, I decided to shift the card elements around just a tiny bit to accommodate the BG stamp I had used. Funny thing, you probably wouldn't even had been able to tell the words were sideways if I had kept it going the wrong direction! But like I said, it was making me twitchy!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do! It was fun to use my new stuff that my demo dropped off along with some stuff I already had.

Mojo Monday

So, I attempted to cut the flower, stem, and leaf to create a more dimensional look. Not so sure how it turned out...I love the color combo, and this is the first time in several years that I have used the tulip stamp set!. It is raining with typical Chicago winds, so a pretty sunny yellow tulip is a perfect little ray of sunshine for my day!

The more I look at this card, the more bland it seems to look to me...maybe I need a whole bunch of yellow tulips!
