A LITTLE BIT OF MOJO.....

and I do mean little, LOL! I had a heck of a time with this card but I was determined to finish it!! It is based on this week's Mojo Monday sketch and I had a tougher time than I thought I would...I think I was tired(that's my excuse anyway *wink*). I am not completely happy with this one, but I thought I would share anyway to see what you think! I did use my new(to me) set that I have been wanting to ink up and that is Thoughts and Prayers but I used a sentiment from my Whimsical Words (SAB set) set because.....well....it fit better in the space I had, LOL!!!! I have TONS of stamping to get done today in preparation for my weekend workshop and class, so I am off to the stamping room! Thanks for stopping by, I love ya for it!!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Dusty Durango, Very Vanilla card stock, Dsp(retired)
Inks - Dusty Durango, Old Olive Classic Inks
Stamps - Thoughts and Prayers, Whimsical Words
Accessories - Old Olive Satin ribbon, Old Olive Brads, Scalloped Edge Border Punch and Corner Punch

Lovely mojo card, Alex :D I really do need to get the corner punch to go with my border punch as it frames images so nicely. Great colour combo and a fabulous card.

Hi there

What wonderful cards, I just love all the SU products. I've just became a new demonstrator of SU late last year and just love it, I love to go and check out other sites to get idea on making new cards or projects.

thanks for wonderful ideas
