Mojo Monday Gets Trendie
I combined this week's Mojo Monday sketch and the CR84FN inspiration challenge. I just love the colour combination of the inspiration picture, and it is perfect for turning one's thoughts to Spring, especially after the 3 inches of snow we got this past weekend. It came and went in a day - one of the benefits of living on the West Coast near the water - so it was short lived. However, I must say it was nice to have the frozen version of water rather than the liquid one for a change LOL!
I opted for the square version of the sketch this time as I wanted to use this gorgeous sweet pea image from There She Goes. I coloured the image with Twinkling H2Os and used a heart in lieu of the circle in the sketch. Due to the lovely soft feel of the inspiration pictures, sheer ribbon was my ribbon of choice. Not totally sold on the button by the sentiment, but something was needed near the sentiment panel and after multiple attempts at what should go there, I settled on the button. Darn decision making process on the placement and type of embellishments took me longer than the actual card! It was just one of those indecisive days I guess.
It was great fun to get inky again and a wonderful little break from working for hubby, though I can definitely tell I'm not in my craft room as much as I usually am because the old mojo is harder to start up. Or maybe it's simply due to my still recovering from skewed panelitis LOL!
Have a wonderful day :)
