My Mojo Monday try

I think this is my first time trying Julee's Mojo Monday #70 sketch. It was just one of those times when I make something and nothing I do can make me like it. I think it's the big expanse of black in the background.


I sprayed the black paper with Glimmer Mist for some sparkle. Too bad NONE of it showed up in the photo! I had to move my lightbox (my hubby is finishing the basement and my workspace in in turmoil until it's done) and I just don't have enough lighting where it is so my pictures have been rather dark lately. Only so much Photoshoping you can do...
The dp is one I've had for a while from 3Bugs in a Rug. I love it, but I only could find solid colors to coordinate with it. I suppose I could have created my own dp to go with the floral, but I was being lazy. I added the tiny dragonfly on a dew drop for a little more detail. The base cardstock and saddle stitch ribbon are both Ripe Avocado from Papertrey Ink. And my cute little Prince is from PSX. Are they still around? I must have had this for a long time...I found him in my frog and fish box. Yes, I have an entire 12x12 box filled with frog and fish stamps. And that's only the wood mounted ones...
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Have a good night!

Your photo is fine and your card is very cute! I do like frogs ya know........but don't you think that Photoshop should do more being as it is so freakin' expensive????!! Verification word is "Meteman" - not even goin' there!
