So I got inspired Sunday night to do a card for the Monday Mojo sketch challenge. I knew I was close to the cut off time to enter but I went to work anyway. I also used an expired color challenge from the Paper Players so I knew I couldn't enter that BUT old challenges are good inspiration too! Well I got my card done and thought I should just go and make sure the challenge is closed....turns out I had TWO minutes...TWO left to enter, lol! Obviously I was not going to get a picture taken, edited and then posted somewhere in two minutes. I wish it had just been closed instead of being SO CLOSE to making it, haha. And this card was a winner too! Just look:
Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Perfect Words
Paper: Whisper white, melon mambo, daffodil delight, wild wasabi
Ink: Wild wasabi
Accessories: Scallop circles die, 3 inch circle die, 2.5 inch punch, punch pack, basic pearls, lace ribbon border punch, dotted scallop border punch (wow, this card is punchy, lol)
Isn't it pretty???? I've struggled a bit with the lace border punch so I was happy to find this sketch that it worked perfectly for! It's a bit out of the box for me but I really liked how it turned out. The sentiment is a sneak peek from a new hostess set called Perfect Words...and yes I can't seem to make a card without using it either, lol! I thought the font coordinated really well with the doily theme though!
As for the $13 short...well I didn't gamble much in Vegas but I "won BIG" on a penny slot...I won all of $13, hahaha! I played it for my hubby because the theme was Star Wars and he's a BIG star wars fan so he told me to keep going....well I lost the $13 I won and the $20 I started with...I should have listened to the voice in my head (that sounds JUST like my mom) and cashed out, hehe. Wanna see a picture of my BIG win (it's a bit dark as the bright lights from the win messed with the flash, haha)?
