Mojo 257...

I sat in the Korner Friday afternoon...ready to make a card or two...and my mind went blank.  Creative mojo? gone...imagination? MIA.  So I turned to some sketch sites for inspiration...and when I found Mojo Monday's sketch for this week, I had a winner!  Lots of layers?...check...multiple opportunities for embellishments?...check.  After I had all the pieces cut and arranged, and ready for inking, sewing, and gluing, I realized it was a very familiar color palette that I had, tan, & cream - with touches of green. After spending so much time looking for design inspiration, I wasn't about to waste more time changing my color preferences, and I got right to work creating with the familiar.

So it's just a short post-and-run today...with one little pretty to share...

a few layers are adhered with foam tape for dimension (plus, it makes it easier to add little touches when you get a sudden inspiration after you've already attached pieces :) )

Patterned papers: Graphic 45 a Ladies' Diary      Sentiment stamp: Hero Arts     
Dies: Spellbinders Labels 8, Decorative Labels 8, Classic Scalloped Circles Small, Classic Scalloped Circles Large;
My Favorite Things Royal Leaves; Sizzix Flowers Branches and Leaves
Paper roses: Prima      Rosebuds: ViolaMahr on Etsy      Scalloped Lace: The Funkie Junkie on Zibbet

And here's the sketch that it's based on...
