Imagine the Mojo Locked in a Cage

Oh where, oh where, has my stamping mojo gone, oh where, oh where could it be?  Well, it definitely wasn't with me last night!  I had the night to stamp, and I just sat here staring at the computer (ok, I was chatting away online) but I couldn't think of a thing to do.  Even my usual inspiration of a sketch challenge wasn't sparking anything.

Finally, after more than an hour of sitting around pondering what I could do, I finally decided to just break out my mojo out of a cage and grabbed some stamps, paper, etc. and try to finish a card.  I succeeded in doing that, not sure if I'm thrilled with the outcome of the card, but I stamped and I'm happy about that.

This card uses the Card Positioning Systems Sketch #195 this week.  I've been neglecting some stamps that I've wanted to use, so I thought last night was a good night to break them out.  This uses Bird in a Cage from Stampotique which I thought fit this paper quite appropriately.  I *really* wanted some type of love sentiment but decided to go with a different on instead.
 
 
 
Is this paper too much?  I'm always loving how some of the stamper's I follow pair their papers and I've struggled with this over the years.  I want to pair patterned papers, but it seems like when I do, I'm never quite confident that the pairing works.

Hope your week is going good!  I'm looking forward to a day off tomorrow in which I pray my mojo will arrive.  I'm done prepping for the holiday festival I'll be having a table at on Saturday and so nothing on my plate except stamping and maybe some gift wrapping.

  3. I think it is PERFECT! The image brings out the design in the paper, not the paper overpowering the image. Lovely!
