Mojo Monday..on a Monday!

Ok, so it's been a hectic few weeks. I just realized that this is the first time I've done the Mojo Monday challenge ON a Monday. It only happened because my husband took the girls to the driving range to hit some balls. We had planned to go to a local carnival, but we got there and they were closed for maintenance. I don't know about you, but the last thing I want to see when I go to one of these fly by night carnivals is workers on top of the rides doing things to them. It makes me think something is wrong and I do NOT want to go back tomorrow..lol..but I know i'll have to! :o)

Anyway, here's my card.




 I did love it until I photographed it and I thought to myself, " That vanilla panel needs something". Does it? Should I have used the Cuttlebug and given it some texture? That's what I feel like it needs cause it looks so boring even though I am really happy with the rest of the card. The color scheme I got from a card that Geny did here. Isn't it just gorgeous? I love love love her card!

Ok, well that's it. I've got the house to myself and I think I am going to watch some TV and eat in peace. Take care and have a great week! Oh, and for those of you who asked...No, the light tent thing is still sitting on the floor on the craft room. I haven't even bothered to ask hubby about it. Maybe this weekend!

Such a lovely card, I love this stamp set, not to many PTI stamps that I don't love, but trees are a weakness of mine! Love the soft colors and the ribbon is a perfect touch!
