Mojo Monday

It has been awhile since I played over at Mojo Monday. This week’s challenge #174 looked fairly straight-forward, just like I like ’em! Here is the sketch we got to play with this week:

I had an idea as soon as I had seen the sketch. On the weekend while my son was at hockey practice, I went to a mall I hadn’t been to before (that’s not much of a surprise for those who know that I hate shopping) and found a bid Dollarama. I hit the jack-pot there! They had tons of ribbon and to my surprise, a whole bunch of different lace packages (2 yards each) for $1.00. I picked up about 7 or 8 packages. Now, this was just after I had spent over $20 at a sewing store in the same mall. I was a little ticked off at myself for not going in the Dollarama first, but honestely, I didn’t see it until I came out of the sewing store and saw a couple with a few bags from there. If I had gone in there first, I would have saved myself the $20, but I did get some lovely black satin ribbon and a few other things there too that Dollarama didn’t have, so it wasn’t a total waste. Anyway, the point of all of this is that I also picked up the lovely ribbon that is tied on this card:

Here is what I used to put my card together:

Card Stock – 110 lb. cream, Almost Amethyst (SU retired)
Patterned Paper – Wisteria by Basic Grey
Ink – Versafine Black Onyx, Almost Amethyst
Stamps – Just Rite
Accessories – Cream Rosettes by SU, 1 3/4 and 1 7/8 circle punches by SU, Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Ribbon, dimensionals

I think that is about it. Thanks for taking a look!
