4/16 Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge
Today is Mojo Monday and here is the card I made for it. Below is the card I created, along with my Home Depot advertisement that gave me the burst of inspiration I needed to get started on this card. Sketches are a fun way to create a card quickly . . . but sometimes you just don't have a clue what colors or which stamp set to use. That is when I get out my Inspiration Book. It's a 3-ring binder with page protectors. Whenever I page through a magazine and see something that I like, I tear it out and put it in my Inspiration Book. Most of my pages are from Country Living Magazine. I refer to it often and when my customers ask me how I get all my ideas, I drag it out to show them.
You might have noticed some unusual scallop edging on my card. It came about because I was too lazy to get out of my chair to get my scallop edge punch - and my scallop square was sitting right there on my desk! Laziness . . . the mother of my invention! lol! I took a picture of how I created the scallops for the top and the bottom of my image panel. A picture is worth a thousand words as they say!
