What would we do without a little Mojo?

I know I am not alone when I say that I look forward to the new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge every week. Sometimes, I may struggle to do the sketch any justice but I always love the personal challenge. This week's sketch was one of those that gave me fits but I love to jump in and just work, work, work until I get something that I like enough to post. So here ya go...

About half way through my work on this card, I realized that it meets the requirements for this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner too. They are asking us to make cards that showcase our edge punches. Since my card uses the Fiskars apron lace edge punch, I will be posting my card over there too.

I love these papers but I have had the hardest time using them. They sat for several weeks before I could pick the right project and quite frankly, they didn't make my job any easier with this card either. You think you have coordinating card stock and then you trim a portion to use and the CS doesn't really match well. card is done and I think someone will be thrilled to get a thank you note in the mail for some kind deed done. I made a few so I will be listing all but one in my Etsy shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I am off for now but tune in tomorrow for a new card. Have a great day!

  1. wowser Kyla! Love how your card turned out!! I have that paper too and haven't used it yet. I also love that Verve stamp and now I wonder why I didn't chose it for my Mojo win. Everytime you use it on a card I love it. Those sponged edges are great too and that ribbon and flower by your sentiment is darling! Perhaps this is the inspiration I need to sit down and get my Mojo card done:))
