Here it is Friday and I am just getting around to posting the card I made for Mojo Monday #75. Better late than never, right? If not, don't tell me because that is often my mantra. So, about the card... While the ladies certainly created a lovely sketch that I enjoyed, it was a difficult one for me. When I design a card, I put a lot of thought into color balance and visual weight. This sketch was a hard one for me to choose paper for and even harder to arrange my papers in a manner that pleased me. Let's just say I put WAY too much thought into this project. It is Friday after all. Five days after the sketch was posted for us! I do like how the flower turned out though. I got a few new inks last weekend when I got my strawberry stamp and I was very excited to pull them out for this card.
I decided to leave off the optional circle shape as well as a sentiment. I liked it plain, just the way it is pictured. I may use it as sympathy card or just as a nice notecard. Overall, I guess I like it but it is not my favorite card out of all that I have made. I think the sketch was a great one but my interpretation of it is what is not floating my boat. Oh well! They can't all be our favorites!
