Mojo Monday 278

After my last post I decided to go back and create a card for the current Mojo Monday sketch challenge (not one a month old lol).  This sketch had me scratching my head for a while but I was determined to conquer it!
I decided to go with something a little monochromatic and masculine.  The base card is Midnight Muse, which I have layered with brushed gold and some of the Natural Composition DSP brayered with Midnight Muse to bring out the embossed pattern.  In the picture this has come up with a lovely gold hue.  I am not sure about the scalloped circle sentiment, I may keep fiddling with that and see if I come up with anything else!

The main stamped image is from Feeling Sentimental set from the Sale-A-Bration promotion, the sentiment from Petite Pairs.

I did a re-work of the sentiment, I think this one fits with the feel of the card more than the first.  I added some corner stamping with another of the Sale-A-Bration sets Madison Avenue.

Can you believe I still wasn't happy with my card?  I have made one FINAL change to the sentiment and am now going to leave it well alone!

Happy Stamping


  1. I love the colours and layers you've used Monique, and yes, the last one is my favourite.

  2. I love seeing the evolution of this card. I've used Brushed Gold as a mat, but never thought to use it as focal panel. Your card is gorgeous; I loved seeing its evolution. Your instincts were right about the sentiment panel; that last version is perfection. --Doris
