Mojo Monday

Good evening! It's contest week over on the Mojo Monday blog, and I'm definitely making a card this week. I've missed several of these in a row due to the holidays. Plus, this sketch was intriguing... I usually have, well, "issues" with circles, but I could almost visualize this one. It definitely helped that I had some of my Bloom & Grow dp by My Mind's Eye sitting on my desk. It's been staring at me for the last two days, begging to be used. I love this paper... the colors, the patterns. And some of my favorites are almost gone! Might be time to order some more. :)

I used on of my flower nestabilities for the outer circle and went from there. I added some jewels to the corners in addition to the embellishments indicated in the sketch. And I had to sneak a bow on there somehow, lol! That middle just felt a little lonely... It needed something to balance the layers. And I didn't want to go overboard on the floral theme.

Well, I'm off to join my roomie for a little Chuck marathon on NBC. LOVE that show! It's the cheesiest humor, but it makes me laugh out loud during every single episode. Chuck's just so endearing, hehe. Have a wonderful rest of your evening! And happy almost Friday!

  1. What a wonderful job with this mojo sketch, Kristina :D Great DP and colour combo. Love the nestie you used to frame the sentiment with and the bling is the perfect touch. I agree with your decision re: the ribbon/bow, it does fill in the space perfectly. Lovely job :D

  2. Wow! I can see why you love that dp!! Aqua and orange...a new twist to the pink and yellow of last summer! LOL I love that sentiment and the gems are adorable. Thanks for your continuing support...I'm doing well, it's just a matter of getting used to it. My faith has been strengthened which is a blessing :) (that's why I'm loving your sentiment right now!) Went into the school after hours yesterday to talk to my sub and a few colleagues...just so I'm not bombarded on Monday...planned for Monday and got caught up on mail...and a new student!! All is well, thanks, dear friend.

  3. nice card! love the color combination.

  4. This is just beautiful, Kristina. Love the colors and the fun blossom die.

  5. Beautiful work! The bow fills the space nicely. I had the same troubles and kept me up way too late.
