Lost mojo - found mojo

Hey there

So I have had a couple of mojo issues the past week or so.   I am putting it down to all the academic work I have been doing, creating took a back seat.   I was feeling a little agitated and realised it was because I hadn't done any crafting so set to making something for a friend.   I had REALLY big issues however, nothing I did would turn out right and inspiration was sadly lacking.    I managed to pull something together for my friend which I will post once she receives it.   However I had an extra focal point left over from that card which was originally a boo boo.

I had initially stamped the greeting on the die cut piece and used a two way glue pen and dazzling diamonds on the words but I felt it just looked messy.  So I restamped for my friends card and kept the original "boo boo".  Not wanting to throw out the image I just covered the entire thing with my versamark inkpad, threw on some iridescent ice and voila - boo boo fixed!   The entire piece sparkles so much.

I had a few other scraps floating around on my desk as well and because I was struggling so much I did what all smart crafters do - I headed for a sketch.   I had pinned this sketch from the girls over at Mojo Monday earlier in the week and once I realised I wanted to use it making the card took just minutes. 

Here is my finished card.   Quite simple and yet super effective.     Hope you enjoy.
