A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

Mojo Monday 233

To tell you the truth, most of today I've been trying to make a card for the Simply Less is More masking challenge and I'm failing miserably.  I love the irony that as soon as I am bestowed the honor of a Liebster Award, my creativity takes a bunk!  What's up with that?!  So, in the meantime, what better thing is there to do to find your mojo than participating in the Mojo Monday challenge?  Here is today's posted sketch:

 

And here is my interpretation:


I have a special love for black and white cards no matter the time of year.  I embossed the big bee in white on black and then embossed it in black on white and attached them to the backing card.  I like that the green leaves don't look overly green in the photo.  In real life, I think they look a little out of place and I may change them to one black leaf and one white leaf.  Yes, everything in balance, lined up, matchy-matchy, organized, firmly inside the box, that's me.  Don't feel badly, I'm very happy.  Some might say delirious.  Hey, now.

Please enjoy ~ and thank you for stopping by!  Special thanks to you if you took the time to leave me a comment!

I love black and white too... Sometimes I leave them black and shite and other times I like to add one blast of colour!
Great card.

This is really effective! Love the design. I'm sure your MOJO is back to usual form now, after creating this beautiful card.

There is something timeless and classy about Black and white..
I think you have caught that with this.

I have become a big fan of B&W lately. This is beautiful. I love your interpretation of the sketch.

I don't think you can beat black and white but as ScrappyMo said, it sometimes nice to add a bit of colour too (I love her spelling mishap). Beautiful card.
