My Mojo Monday card

I'm back in the game of challenges. There is no better way to 'kick-start' oneself than to work on some challenges. Julee's Mojo Monday's at Poetic Artisty is probably my favourite. Here's my entry for Week #31.

All of the supplies used in the making of this card are from Papertrey Ink. I began with White Select cardstock for the base. Then I added a 2" strip of Spring Moss on the left, and a 3-1/2" piece of Aqua Mist on the right. Layered on that is a piece of patterned paper from the Everyday Blessings pack. The vertical piece is 2" wide by 4-1/4" long. Then I added a 3" square bit of the same paper, only adhered so the stripes are horizontal. For the next step, I used my Nestabilities for the scalloped and plain circles. Both the Spring Moss plain circle and the Aqua Mist scalloped have also been embossed.

The image and the sentiment are from the Women in Life stamp set. The sentiment was stamped with Aqua Mist ink onto a piece of Aqua Mist c/s, but it doesn't show up as clearly as I would have liked, however, we learn by doing! In case you can't see the sentiment, it says, "Happy Mother's Day, Daughter".

I completed the card with some paper piercing in three of the corners. Overall, I think it's a very gentle-looking card.
