Mojo Wednesday!

I can't even think of the last time I completed a Mojo Monday card, but this week was a first. And you'll have to trust me that I finished it on a Monday too, I just wanted to save it to have something to share later in the week....that and it's for a birthday girl who is celebrating today. Happy Birthday to my fellow Unscripted sketcher, April!

This card came together amazingly quickly for me...under 20 minutes! I had the patterned paper and embossed piece sitting out, a scrap of Rose Red from making some valentines and then I put together the oval piece. Wow, I have amazed myself.....I'm not thrilled with the sentiment (kinda lost there) but I just sat and stared for a few minutes and it didn't fix itself. So this is what it is.... My favorite bit is the green ribbon picking up the bit of Green Galore in the stems, which I colored with my Stampin' write marker. Wish I had THAT in every color!

Five straight days of posting, wow! Have you had enough of me yet? It's my stress relief from school, so I anticipate more in the future....



  1. LOL Go Caryl...gorgeous Mojo card!!
    I don't think any of my cards ever go together quickly :0(

  2. Don't you just love it when one falls in place so easily? Great card, Caryl! I saw that you'd posted your Mojo card just before I did! Lol! Hugs!

  3. Beautiful card, Caryl. It's so fun when a card or layout comes together quickly.

  4. beautiful! and easy! now that's perfect crafting - lol.

    hugs :)

  5. Oooooh pretty! Love the big oval against the lovely patterns.

  6. Beautiful card and there is never too much Caryl. Have a great weekend. I can't wait to see what you have for Unscripted.

  7. What a great Mojo card! I am so jealous of the time it took you to create this beauty! Beth

  8. Great job using up pieces on your desk to make this come together quickly and complete a challenge.

    I sometimes have the same issue with sentiments I stamp on patterned paper. If I think they blend too much, I will re-stamp the sentiment on white (or whatever is appropriate) and cut or punch it out and adhere it over the original stamped sentiment to make it pop more. But I think yours is still very read-able and the pink goes with your color scheme.
