No Mojo...

Hi Everyone!

Well, I waited until now to post my entry for today because I was planning to do Mojo Monday sketch. However, there doesn't seem to be one posted today. I decided to make this card instead. It is one that I will be donating to SCS's Cards for a Cause this month for Chemo Angels. Be sure to click on the link to find out more about this cause.
I used Real Red, Sage Shadow and Black for my colors. The red pattern paper is from the red print patterns designer series paper. I stamped the flower from Simply Said onto white paper and then used stipple brushes with Red ink and Sage ink to make the background. Then I inked the edges with black ink. The Stipple technique is new for me, and one that I am still experimenting with. I got some stipple brushes at Michael's this weekend; but realized when I got home and looked in my SU catalog that I actually bought the wrong kind. They are stipple brushes; but a bit different. Anyhow, the rest of the card is fairly straightforward as you can see.
Ok, so I know today is a short post; but I have a meeting tonight and tons to do before I leave. Oh, and I have to finish watching GH before I can do any of it!!!
Have a great day and thanks for visiting with me.
