MoJo Madness Contest 209

 Most weeks Mo Jo Monday Challenge  is just for fun. But the first week of every month they offer a prize for the top picks. That makes it even more fun.  They'll choose one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of SEVEN winners!!! Winners will receive the 
Verve Stamps set of their choice.

The base is sand colored, topped with chocolate brown then "enamored embrace" from the Le Romantique collection by Graphic 45. I don't know where the paper with the clock came from. I made an svg file for the lamp and did a shadow cut in black. I attached the lamp to a gold metallic circle mounted on a gold shimmer paper cut with SB scalloped circles. The sentiment "You brighten my day"  is printed on acetate using the mirror option , then rubbed on. The metallic gold reflects behind the lamp brightening the card. The clock suggests a day. Pretty symbolic I think. 
I know its not a good picture, but after several attempts it will have to do. Any way if I don't win...I can say it's because they can't see the real beauty of this card. Silly me:)

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.

Wishing you a productive and creative week. Craft on... Carole


  1. The effect of the card is striking. There is a lot of visual power. Let's call that the emotive votive. Think about what occurs to you when I say that that lights up the corners. I believe that its "intent" is to invoke recollection through time, perhaps? I appreciate what you're doing and who you "be" everyday. I hope to remember to tell you a bit about photo props and lighting. I have a YAHOO GROUPS suggestion for blogging expansion, too. Cheers to you as you blog on.

  2. Oh wow...now I really like that...love things that are sorta nostalgic and this fits the bill.

  3. very pretty, hope you have a super day!

    enjoy *~*
