Easter Mojo.

Does the colour scheme look familiar?  That would be because it was my attempt at doing the current Embellish Magazine challenge except that I forgot the border!  That's about how my creativity is going this week.  I'm lost.  Me thinks it's time to take a couple of days break and read a good book.  And I would except that I'm the guest designer for Cinema Saturday this week and I want to come up with something more than just nice.  I've been wanting to win that Audrey Award since before Christmas and now that time has finally come and I'm stuck!  My guess is that's what separates the pros from the amateurs and I am very much still an amateur!

Anyhow, this card does fill two other wonderful challenges 1) Mojo Monday 2) Everything But the Kitchen Sink (EBTKS).  This is another challenge that I try hard to participate in.  Their monthly sketches are based on something around the house and then they have another monthly challenge using an element from around the house.  It's all very outside the box and I find it helps find a greater depth in my creativity.  I was so delighted and honoured to make the top 5 for EBTKS last sketch challenge. Thanks ladies! Their next challenge is to add fabric to your project.  The bottom and top flower layers are fabric from a birthday dress that my mom made for my daughter a few years back.  It was a beautiful dress with a peach petticoat and venetian lace that I had pick up during my last visit to meet my Italian in-laws. 

The card isn't very fancy but I think it's still pleasant to the eye and sentimental (just the way I like them).  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day.
