Something different

While having the annual clean up of my work room I "found" quite a few forgotten die sets and thought I should have a play to try and kick start my flagging mojo (it's suffering from the January blues at the moment!!). Anyway here is the first attempt...oh and not an image in sight which was a bit of a struggle!!


I used MFT Blueprints 14 and hand cut black mats to accentuate the bright colours. 
The pretty paper was in my scrap box together with the offcuts of red left over from Christmas cards.

I would like to play at these challenges

  18. Looks to me like your MoJo is in fine fettle with this cheery bright card. And kudos to you for creating such a fun & happy feeling card and not using a single image. I just love that lovely dp and the shaping added so much interest. Good job at hand cutting the black mat to bring out the wonderful yellows & reds. Was happy to see you zipped over to the Snippets Playground with this one. It's just perfect! Hope the week has been going well for you. I'm finally sitting down to play some catch up visits! TFS & Hugs
