Look, Julee! I found my Mojo!!

Ok, so I was just all excited that I did Julee's Mojo Monday challenge to use those "almost card pieces" laying around in your stamp room...when I remembered there was a sketch too. So I have my MO....now I gotta go get my JO! lol You'll just have to love me for what I am, as forgetful as I may be.

I got this image (from the Stampin Up hostess set Vases in Vogue) in an image swap a while back. I colored it and there it sat in my sad little box of almost cards (mostly colored images), waiting to be used. Today was her day!

I needed this to be a simple card, mostly because I'm tired and it's late! I've been busy working on Christmas Card samples, so this was a nice little break.
My card base is Soft Sky, stamped with the Print Pattern background in the same ink. I tied 2 strips of ribbon (I promise it matches IRL!) across the front that I found at this amazing store a couple of weeks ago...$2.69 for 18 yards!!!! It matches the Cameo Coral marker I colored the vase with. I also used Artichoke and Rose Red (I think?) for the rest of the image. The black matting makes it stand out a bit I think, and the rounded corners finished it off nicely. I finally got to use my A Muse sentiment...I've had it forever and thought it was perfect for this card.

Ok, so I broke the rules, but I hope you enjoyed my MO...
Have a happy Tuesday!

I think this is perfect. I don't mind that you didn't use the sketch, I think it would have been distractiong for the images and sentiment you used.
Pretty colors, pretty card.
