Hello Everyone, I thought today I would try my luck by entering a few challenges, with a card that I didn't think was ever going to become reality.

For some reason this week my Mojo seemed to have taken vacation or it has been kidnapped by all the talented folks out there in blog land (smiles).  So I decided to practice coloring with my Spectrum Noir pens.  Yep this is my newest collection of pens so I have to master them, but so far my goal to master these pens is far from within my reach.  But as my friend Joyce, would say we shall not be defeated by ink nor paper.  She's such a hoot.

I think my lull is due to long working hours and few sleeping hours. But I was able to visit YouTube University in search of my mojo and there it was just waiting for me to grab it again.  So now that I have it back I thought I would try my luck with a couple of challenges.

So I present to you my card that I hope will bring me some luck.




The paper is Melissa Francis and the digital image I found on Graphic Fairy. She has lovely vintage images available for download.  I used Wild Orchid flowers and pearls from Prima.  The lace I found in my stash.  On the inside I used a template to emboss the birdcages and on the right I have space to add a sentiment or a personal message.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Just Us Girls - JUGS #205 Sketch (I turned the lace vertical )
Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C #202 Flowers and Pearls
Catch the Bug Challenge - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge #200 Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Challenge 23 Anything Goes
Digitally Sweet - Challenge #52 Anything Goes
