Back in the Saddle Again

I've had a wonderful day of crafting today.  I got a two-page layout done that finished off my book for 2011.  Yes, I am a year behind...but actually I have several years to do before 2004.  2004 was when I started doing a yearly book.  I am not very good at keeping up with a year because I'm just not a chronological scrapper.  Once in a while a year gets finished, and that's what I did today.  After I was finished with that, I moved on to the Mojo Monday sketch, and this is what I came up with:


I so seldom use Dakota, so it was great fun to work with the colors in the paper packet - Slate, Pacifica, and Barn Red.  A few embellishments along with the paper, and this card was done!

I hope you are enjoying this time between Christmas and New Year's.  Be sure to take some time for yourself to re-charge!

This is one of my favorite Brenda cards ever. It's so funny that when I step out of my comfort zone and use papers, colors and shapes that are a stretch for me it seems I get the most comments. I think it's great to do something "new" for us once in a while. This is beautiful art!

What a great card. I really like how you centered that medallion shape from the patterned paper. That star really sets off this card.
