Mojo Monday Card Challenge 169

Yesterday my friend Jayma Malme and I were talking via Twitter about card-making.  She saw my recent blog post about Christmas cards and was inspired to create a card based on two of the designs.  I loved the card she came up with and I suggested we trade card ideas and put our own twists on cards the other person has made.

She asked me if I had heard of Mojo Monday and their weekly card challenges.  I didn’t think I had, so I looked at the website and saw a card sketch.  It was Monday night so I thought, “Why not?” and immediately sat down and made a card to enter!  It was fun being challenged and given a suggestion for a fresh new card layout.

So, I’m taking a momentary break from sharing Christmas cards to show you the card I made for this card challenge. Here is the sketch my card was patterned after:

This is the card I designed.  I’m showing two pictures because I like the artsy angle of the first image, but figured I should include a picture of the card head-on, as well.  Be sure and check out the beautiful cards the other crafters have entered by visiting the Mojo Monday blog post associated with this challenge.

I used regular 8.5″ x 11″ red and black craft cardstock and the beautiful background paper is from Stampin’ Up! The stamp is something I found at Hobby Lobby in Fort Collins, CO and it’s made by Stampabilities.  The double layer of flowers are from Close to My Heart and the satin button-like brad is from K & Company.

        I didn’t end up making one with this sketch, but I probably will do one for this week’s challenge. I’m having a crafty day with my aunt on Wed or Thur 🙂
