As I was checking some of the many blogs I follow I was drawn in by the MOJO Monday challenge. I just really felt the need to follow a layout and see what I could do - this meant stepping out of my box! I have this crazy paper I purchased by Anna Griffin Inc....it has an animal print and is actually fuzzy. The original plan was to use it for some coaster size decorative items I was going to make but I ended up using another pattern. It just seemed to call for bling and more bling when I got to going on it....I really like the new Nestabling by Want 2 Scrap - so easy to use and looks fabulous with the dies. I also thought this was going to be a birthday card for a friend who love animal prints but as you can see that didn't happen. The picture really doesn't do this justice......it is really very striking looking......it was actually fun to create. While it may be hard to believe that gold bling down the side is ribbon/decorative purchased from JoAnn Fabrics.
