You're a Star

Well, my mojo seems to be making it's way back from Tahiti somewhat...I really wish it'd stayed there so I could go visit!  I really do seem a little more in a creative mood the last day or two so that's a good thing.  I was sitting here yesterday morning and thinking HOW can I get some creative juices flowing....and then remembered Mojo Monday!  Ah, maybe that would help.....and it did!  I like the sketch they have this week and decided to play along in the challenge............


I used the Star die from SU along with Night of Navy, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, and Very Vanilla.  I embossed on the red and blue panel with the Swiss Dots folder and popped up the stars.  The ribbon is some blue jean ribbon from SU that I bought quite a while back and never have used.  I thought it went good on this masculine card so I'll enter it in the challenge Creative Card Crew (masculine) too. The sentiment is from Perfect Words (SU) and I topped that star with a silver star brad.

Thanks for stopping by............oh, and I have a FUN post coming up on Friday......

I would say your mojo has returned, this is fantastic and such a great "guy" card. Loving the colors with the ribbon and the paper as well as how you did the sentiment.

I love the way your red, white and blue star image looks against this background Lynn and I think you're right - the denim ribbon is perfect for this card!

Hey Lynn, this is a magnificent card... the star looks so royal and the sentiment matches perfectly. The background paper makes the start stand out so very well.

What a great sentiment too!!

Glad your mojo is back - even though you didn't get to go to Tahiti!

WOW! I really like this card Lynn! The colors are really eye catching and the star dies are perfect. Everything about this card is great and it's so hard for me to achieve that with a masculine card. You really nailed it. Looks like Tahiti did your mojo good! (hint, next time go with it though, he he)
