Mojo anyone?

This is my interpretation of the week 79 sketch at Mojo Monday. This is the first time I've actually used one of their sketches...I've looked hundreds of times...but haven't had much of a chance to actually DO one!

I bought this stamp set last month and just now got around to opening it up! I was really glad to do it though as the stamp was fun...and made the card come together pretty quickly once I settled on a paper to use! I'm the worst when it comes to selecting papers sometimes...I have been known to sit and stare for over 30 minutes at a paper combo trying to decide if it "works"...and yet there are other times I see the paper and know instantly what I want to do with it. This was one of the in-between times...but once I settled on what paper to use...the rest was easy!
There will be a new sketch tomorrow over at if you get the chance, I say drop by and take a peek!

  1. VERY cool card for your first MOJO! I love it! oh, and I do approve of the music here!!! .......tkin bout my girlllllll.... :)

  2. Love that Eiffel Tower stamp and the vintage look of the card! Great job!

  3. What an awesome looking card. Love the stamps and you did a great job picking out the paper.

  4. Another great Mojo card! I hope you keep playing. Your stamp reminded me of some awesome paper I just bought that would match this stamp perfectly. It's very rustic and from a new company called Graphic 45 that I haven't seen any place else yet. I'm going to post a picture on my blog of the paper just for you. Maybe we could do a swap, say 3 stamped images for three 4x5 pieces of this lucious paper? Come over to my blog and take a look, then let me know what you think. The paper is actually more subdued than the picture, sort of like a rich rustic red. From the looks of your card samples, I think you'd love it. Follow this link to my blog post to take a look
