Inspiring your Mojo...

Sometimes our mojo just gets bored...
this is when "challenge" sites can be very useful.
For this card I have taken inspiration from 3 challenges;
always a good place to start as it can give you ideas for colour combis 
and layouts.

 I took the different sized circles and the purple, yellow and neutrals, 
and the unusual lines of the bed and blanket combi reminded me of a shaped stepper card in my blanks stash.
 I stamped flowers rather than just circles on my base card and coloured with
 promarkers in Lilac/ivory/pastel yellow/leaf green.
use a farm animal
 I actually have a stamp set from Graphics 45 that has Mary and her lamb
(which I had forgotten about)
 This is the card matted and layered(still think it looks like the bed and blanket shape lol)
which gave me my embellishment :D
 A little sparkle and I'm pretty happy with this little card
as is my mojo :D

Enjoy :D XXX
