A Mojo & Embellish Challenge Card

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Hello! I feel like it's been forever since I've posted anything. I've been pulled in many directions lately and on top of that, I'm sick. Anyway, I finally got a few moments of solitude to play around with some new stamps. This card uses Papertrey's Background Basics: Text Style stamps. I used the Mojo Monday Sketch, which I tweeked a tiny bit.
I'm also participating in a new challenge at the Embellish Magazine Blog. This challenge was to use the colors blue, green, yellow, and red and you also had to use brads. Well, I don't own any colored brads, so I made some "faux brads" out of small punched circles. You can see them as the butterfly centers.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today!

really like this card-I thought you created your own background with text-nice stamp-alss like the faux brads-I do that a lot on cards when I don't have a matching brad.
hope you are feeling better

Dana You did an awesome job on this card. The colors look great, I love the way you used Papertrey's background stamps. I've been deciding to get them, I think I will now. I too use punches to make my brads. Thanks for sharing. Hope you feel better soon. Don't forget lots of chicken soup, hot tea & honey also Oil of Oregano really helps with sore throat, cough and colds. I gave it to my husband 'cause he was coming down with something and he was better in a few days. A couple of drops under the tough does the trick. Tastes "Ucky" but really works really good. Feel better. Love your blog. *** Judy
