Mojo Monday #83
Hi everyone,I finally got a card finished for Mojo Monday and didn't miss the deadline.I had to flip the sketch sideways for my image to fit, not usually something I do.I found another DCWV paper pack at Big W called the Green Pack,it is 70% recycled paper and I decided to use this paper with Bizzy Becs Lily,they fit perfectly together.These are not my usual colours,but I am quite pleased with how it turned out.The black hair was a little harder to shade than other colours and it hasn't turned out too bad, considering I taught myself to colour by looking at other blogs and how they colour.So thanks to all the bloggers out there that share their work and help us all to become very creative.I have been so busy the last two days I haven't had a chance to check out your blogs,I will be catching up on this tonight.Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Your card is darling Cheryl! You put these colors together so well. I love the DP you used. They do go together very well. Great coloring job too and I love how you added the sentiment on that ribbon. I'm off to cruise your blog and see what else you've been up to:)) I may not get to the Mojo sketch this week as I am out of town, but I like the sketch and will probably do it on my own.
