Mojo Monday 162 - Life's Moments

This is my first posted Mojo Monday. I have been following the blog for about a year or more, but usually don't post my cards as they tend to be last minute creations that immediately are given away. Not so today.

Just about everything conspired to keep this card from happening today; starting with not being able to locate the paper I wanted to use, right down to the nasty cut on my hand from setting up the photo tent and lights.

I really liked MM162 and knew right away what I wanted to do with it. The final product is off only by the pearls. I have larger pearls that match the smaller ones, but can not find them, which I was going to add to the top of the brownish strip.

Oh and I tried to use the new seam binding ribbon ..... ROFL!! Clearly it's hard to get nice results, even if all the mega talented ladies out there make it look easy! I'll revisit the ribbon some other day. :)

Stamps: SU! Elements of Style
Paper: SU! Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler; Basic Grey Wassail
Embellishments: Memory Box Pearls; Recollections Boutique Fleur


  1. Wonderful job with the sketch! I love everything about it, lots of great details. The stamp from Elements of Style behind your papers really completes this card. Sorry to hear you cut your hand!! And I know what it's like when you know exactly what you want...but can't find it!

  2. I'm so envious of people like you who take a sketch, make it their own, and create such a beautiful card! All the elements are so lovely.

  3. Beautiful card - love the rich colors especially.

  4. Beautiful card! I love the rich warm colors of the reds, browns and DSP you used.
