A little brad crazy

It's Monday and that means Mojo Monday over at Poetic Artistry. Now, if you've hopped over there and looked at her sketch and then looked at my card you probably noticed that mine doesn't match. Yeah... I intended to follow the sketch, but it wasn't working out with the gigantic K and kindness defintion I had already stamped, so I nixed it and added a bagillion antique brass brads instead of another paper layer there. I still like the card though and now I get to have another go at mojo monday, so it's all good! Here's the details - I used pretty in pink for my card base and layered purely pomegranate and berry bliss designer paper. The middle strip is purely pomegranate and berry bliss again, but the other side. Can you even see the pink polka dots on the paper? It's pretty light in this photo - dang this camera! Ok, maybe it's just my lack of good lighting in my home. The ribbon is purely pomegranate double stitched grosgrain (just got another spool of it - love it!) The stamp set is from last year's simply sent kit called Just K. I got it because it had the K in it and thought it would be a good monogram for me. Anyway, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the definition and K just so and added the brads. Did I go too crazy? Nah. Stay tuned, I'll try this sketch again for another day.

  1. Lovely card! I love how it turned out, even if it didn't work for the sketch. I had to take two tries at my sample card, too, because my first image was wrong for it, too! :)
