A little bit of MOJO!!!

I've been wanting to participate in the MOJO Monday Sketch Contest for AGES!!!! Well... Finally I have!!! Woohoo!!!. Considering my MOJO seems to be having a little vacation this week... Oh MOJO... where are you?????

It was such a lovely little sketch to play along with, but for some reason NOTHING I wanted to happen with my card, seemed to be happening. I changed colours a few times, I changed stamps a few times... oh and lets not even get going on how many times I changed ribbon!!!!
Anyway, here is what I finally settled on:-

I decided on a colour combo of Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and a touch of Mellow Moss.
I layerd some Pink Pirouette onto the Close to Cocoa and then added some DSP from Candy Lane... have I mentioned before how much I LOVE this pack of DSP???? Oh LOTS!!! hahaha.
I used the same technique I used in this card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, that being stamping the sentiment from Best Yet and then using my Pocket Silhouettes to create a 'Silhouette' behind it in Pink Pirouette. THEN.... I thought I'd try my hand at creating my very own paper flower. I've seen this technique been used quite a bit out there in BLOGLAND.. and have wanted to have a go... so why not... and off I went flower making. I used Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Close to Cocoa cirlces, which I roughed up a bit with my paper distresser and then secured with a Rhinestone Brad. The leaves I just cut out freehand and attached. Oh and there is a little bit of Mellow Moss ribbon added there too.

Hope you like.
