Merry Mojo

Hi Friends

Yesterday I made this card for Merry Monday using Julee's sketch from Mojo Monday... so it is being entered into both challenges.  For Merry Monday (click Here to see other samples) we were asked to do a card using the colors of gold, silver, and black... so very elegant ... but this was a bit of a challenge for me.

And here is Julee's wonderful sketch.  Click Here to visit Verve's Mojo Monday.

And, here is what I came up with....

I kept my design pretty true to the sketch.  I had all sorts of paper combinations, images, dies, punches (you name it) all over my desk but, in the end, I wound up using gold and silver foil paper with basic black and my new Flower Fair framelits... these are the framelits that "normally" go with the new Flower Patch stamp set... who knew?  Another use for the framelits... yay.  I cut double layers of the flower and popped it all up with dimensionals. I also ran the silver paper through the Big Shot using my snowflake embossing folder.  The ribbon is from my stash and the little sentiment is from Verve's Ornamental Christmas.  

I hope you like my card ... I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out but, honestly, I wasn't too sure as it 'morphed' through its stages.

Tomorrow I'm off to my friend Gail's for a stamp-a-stack.  I'll be back Monday with pictures!!!

Thanks for taking a look...
