Paper Mojo

I made this card last night, and really struggled with it. Not sure why, the layout at Mojo Monday was perfect, and I had that part come together so nicely. Than I went to add my images and was lost! I pulled out a Paper Trey Ink set, and got ready to go. But than I struggled getting it to work the way I was hoping. I think it's because I saw so many awesome cards on the blog with the swirly flower and I should have used that part of the PTI set, instead of the part I did use. So, I can see me trying this layout challenge again. I worked on it so long, and it got too late to switch gears. I even left at one point, but found hubby in the shower, which stopped me from taking a bath. (That's not where this post is going!) There would be no hot water for me to take a bath! Instead of relaxing in the tub, I returned to the card, and finished it. I wasn't sure I was happy with it last night. But this morning, looking over it, it's a pretty card. It's just what I was hoping for. If that makes sense!

Supplies: Basic Grey pattern papers, SU Carr. blue, wild wasabi, pretty in pink, SU ink wild wasabi, regal rose, cert. celery, shimmerz blue and pink, gems, primas, TAC Swirly, PTI With Sympathy, nesties.
