Mojo Monday #50


Hi All

I'm really enjoying my time off work this week. Which means I'm making good ground on the challenges. This time I've tackled the Mojo Monday one over at Poetic Artistry. I thought I would try something different this time, amd move away from all the cute images and colours for a change. I've had this stamp for an absolute age, and never used it, so I dusted it off, and what a great image.
I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I did a little gold embossing around one layer if the scalloped circle, and down the one edge of the card. It was fun doing this challenge, and making a more classic, subdued look.

My mum would have liked this card if she'd been alive today. It is the tenth anniversary of her death on 31st August, so she's in my thoughts constantly at the moment. God bless her.

Aww, sweetie.. Maybe the more sombre look is reflective of your mood?

Is the stamped image Frida Kahlo?

Thinking of you and sending hugs..

Love this new style.... very chic and arty. A fitting tribute to your Mum's memory too. May you have lots of lovely memories and recollections of beautiful times tomorrow.
