I received a box of brand-new goodies from My Favorite Things this weekend, and I couldn't wait to use my latest playthings for this week's Mojo Monday sketch, #268. Here's this week's sketch...
And here's what I created with it, using the YOU SHINE a la mode:
Isn't she lovely? I haven't said this in a while, so if you're fairly new to my blog, you may not be aware of this fact that I shout out every time I use an a la mode: MY NEICE ILLUSTRATED THAT! Yep, she's a very talented young lady (who's birthday is later this week, on the 25th - Happy B-day, Amanda!). I'd like to say that talent runs in the family, but there's a reason I stamp instead of draw... *sigh*
I kept my card pretty simple, to keep the emphasis on the cute gal tangled up in lights. I added some sparkle via a Sakura Stardust pen, spread with water (a tip from my pal Jen del Muro), so the lights are very shiny IRL. Otherwise, this card is fairly straightforward stuff.
Visit my fellow Mojo Makers for more inspiration, and be sure to visit the Mojo Monday Blog to learn how you can play along with us in this week's sketch.
