It's Monday.......Do you know what that means?

It means that it is Mojo Monday again! AND once again they have come up with a sketch that is impossible to resist! LOL This just might be my favorite sketch yet! I even surprised myself with how quickly this card came together. I do feel that it needs some brads or something because it feels plain to me. But when I did try to add a little something, it just seemed to make it look too busy. Anyhoo.....Here is the sketch....

And here is my take on the sketch......


For my card I used CTMH Stardust paper pack and Reach for the Stars stamp set. I stamped the rocket and exhaust with Versa Mark and Staz On and then embossed the image with Ultra Fine embossing powder. I used my CTMH Moonstruck Topiary and Grey Flannel markers to color both in. I really like how the embossing keeps the colors from bleeding into one another. It keeps it looking crisp to me. Here is a close up to show the dimension..........



Most supplies used for this card are CTMH:

Paper: My Reflections Stardust Level 2
Stamps: CTMH Reach for the Stars
Ribbon: Outdoor Denim and White Daisy
Nestabilities Circles

Hope that I have inspired in some way today!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you come back soon!
