My First Mojo Monday...

Okay, so you are probably thinking, 'Why is there a picture of used grid paper on here?' :) Well, I will tell you...the grid paper was sitting on my desk still after making the swap card and my color challenge card, and this is what it looked like. I was inspired...I wanted to make a card using those stamps and colors, and then I looked over and saw my sketch for the Mojo Monday challenge, so I thought I would make that be the card. :)

This is the sketch we were given...The idea was to be able to use some of your taller stamps, but I don't have any really tall stamps, so I changed it a little. :)
And this is what I came up with...I love it, not to toot my own horn or anything, but I think this is one of my favorite cards I have done in awhile! :) Don't look to close at the dots though, apparently I need the wheel guide! :)
This one is just a close up of the little 'brad washers' that I did (I don't know if they have a better name)! :)
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Lots of Dots Jumbo Wheel (retired)
Ink:Basic Black, Certainly Celery
Card stock: Black (not SU!), Whisper White and Certainly Celery
Accessories: Slit Punch, 1/4" circle punch, Black Brads (not SU!)

I think you did a great job on this card! Sometimes I have a hard time placing the swirl in the exact right position. I like how it seems to be spilling over from the top left corner.

By the way, thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comment!
