Mojo Monday sketch plus a show & tell

Hi all,

I've had a very productive day today (see below for my first post). I decided to make a card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge here & this is what I came up with. I'm not worried I didn't make the deadline, as I had fun making this card.

I thought I would do a show & tell so you can see one of my scrappy cards being made. I know every one probably does this but thought what the heck, lets give this a go ;). I cut out a dark scrap of c/s slightly larger than the light c/s. I wasn't worried that there would be a chunk missing from one side. As you can see I had used this piece for other projects. Unfortunately the second pic is on it's side the computer is having a hissy fit - must be the heat. But you get the idea of what the scraps look like attached to a card base.

I then repeated the above step for the smaller pieces again not worrying about a chunk missing from the side.

As you can see below the "missing bits" are completely covered by the ovals. I then added all the extra little bits & bobs at the end.

Thank you so much for sticking through this post till the end. Have a wonderful week full of crafty fun - TTFN
