Off the Wall Mojo Monday

I love the colors of the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge (OTWC27) so much, I had to make another.  I decided to pair it with the Mojo Monday 159 sketch.  This card took way longer than it should have because I was trying to make iwth work with dark brown and it just didn't want to do that.  Have you ever had that happen?  It's frustrating, but once I gave in and moved to the kraft, it came together quickly.



I used that pot of shimmer colors I got at JoAnn's again...tried to see if I could capture it.
 
Supplies:
Paper - Kraft (unknown), Bazzill linen, SU (retired DP)
Stamps - Hero Arts Swirl Christmas (CL469), Papertrey Holiday Tags
Ink - Versafine Sea Breeze, Sahara Sand
Accessories - Hero Arts Hues - Prism, May Arts double faced satin, MS sticker, dimensionals, Metallic rubons, Spellbinders die 





Here are the colors this week:



Pin It!

Beautiful card!! I know what you mean about the colors not working. I had that happen with a card a couple of weeks ago I think I made 3 different cards before I got it to work. lol. Love the sparkle on this.

Very nice! Is it wrong that as I was reading I was hearing 'give in to the kraft'? *giggle*
