Some More Mojo Monday

Hi again, as I mentioned I went a littel crazy with the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #229 (see my entry post from yesterday) and made several cards using the sketch.  These are some of the other cards I made and want to share with you.

This card will be going to my Sister-in-law Jan.  As you can see I'm late with her birthday wishes (darn!) but she is getting a really fun card since I saw this sketch to use :o)

This will be a fun card so pass around at one of my workshops coming up.  I like how it shows an alternate use of the patterned paper by snipping out an image and making a whole new coordinating element.  Love the tiny pop of pink in the corner.

I'm usually a "follow the rules" kind of gal but this image just called for me to "flip" the sketch and try something a little different with it.  This will be the card for my up-coming Easter workshop.  It will be fun to show the ladies how to "paint" the image using the ink refills and blender pens.  I'm so glad for my Sizzix and texture folders - best investiment I made so far.  Just a subtle thing that adds so much to a card.  I really love that ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration freebies.  It has such a pretty sheen and just adds a touch of instant elegance to everything I use it on (the Calypso Coral is beautiful too). 

Hope you have enjoyed these cards too!
