Finding my MOJO

Thanks to all the lovely people that come here and leave wonderfully encouraging feedback. It's been a really help when trying to find my creative mojo.  Even those who don't leave feedback, I keep seeing the visit counter going up and I can't help but feel proud that I may just be inspiring some people out there besides my wonderful children. Today my daughter said the cutest thing while I was making the card below.  "Mommy I want you to show me how to make beautiful cards like that.  I want to make them just like you when I grow

So without further ado here is my first completed Mojo Monday Challenge #99.  The layout is quite busy and so is the paper but I think the plain card stock and ribbon does a nice job of simplifying it a little bit. I must admit, I thought about making the card more eclectic by embracing more of the patterned paper from the Basic Grey Lemonade collection but maybe next time with a more simple layout.  What do you think?

For some reason this card reminds me of cotton candy. Maybe it's the combination of pinks and blues....or maybe I'm just hungry.  The hot pink twill ribbon I have had in my ribbon bin since Christmas.  It was from the wrapping of a pair of La Senza pajamas I received. (Yes, the pajamas were covered in Hot Pink...thanx sis).  I'm so glad I finally got a chance to use it!
