MY FIRST MOJO CARD


Happy Wednesday everyone!!! I decided to try my first Mojo Monday card. Julee at Poetic Artistry has a sketch every Monday. It was about time I gave it a go. I really like this layout. The picture changed to color of the ribbon...weird!!! It really is bright white. I tried taking several pictures but they all did the same thing. I wanted to use just two colors on this card, something I don't do very often. I have always been told things in threes are more appealing to the eyes. But I really like the way it turned out. I used the Martha Stewart punch in the center of the scallop flower...I finally found out the name of the punch...hydrangea petals. I also used the MS scallop border punch....my SU is in the mail. HURRY MR. BROWN!!!!!!

HOW DID SHE DO THAT???

Stamps: Warm Words
Ink: Real Read
Paper: Whisper White, DP Real Red and Real Red
Tools: MS hydrangea punch, MS scallop border punch, scallop punch 1 and 3/4 Circle punches and word tag punch
Embellishments: white ribbon and glitter glue in red.

Okay I am going to try and stamp some more. I just got back from the ear doctor. I had to have my ear vacuumed out...can you say head spinner!!!!! I think some of my brain got sucked out....it throws off your equilibrium off for awhile......which make you sea sick.
I have teenie tiny ear canals...HA! go figure...the only thing tiny about me LOL. Anywho ...that causes some problems and my ears get plugged. This is the first time though to an ear doctor and the vacuum. So my next stamping project may look dizzy :0)

Have a Marvelous rest of the day and come back soon!!
