home sick with the mojo

So I'm home sick today with a stomach virus. Nothing too vicious, but nothing we need to pass around at work, either.

This left me with lots of time to make my brother's birthday card, and no brain power or creative inspiration to do so. So I started surfing my favorite websites and stumbled upon a sketch challenge at Mojo Monday. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally try one out, and maybe even post it.

I rummaged through my supplies and found: bravo burgundy CS from SU, swirly paper from CTMH, acrylic stamps from CTMH, some generic CS and brads from my stash, and acrylic paints from Making Memories.

So - totally not up to my usual self picky standards, but with a broken cutter, I couldn't do too many layers, and I just couldn't seem to wrap my fuzzy head around proportions. You can't see it very well from the photo, but the red paint is actually a metallic glaze. Without the shimmer, the card looks rather blah, sort of how I'm feeling today!

Just in case the photo won't load for you, here is the photobucket link.

I'm off to take a nap and hope my inspiration will return!
