Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge

My cards tend to all start looking alike as far as layouts go.  It's something I struggle with.  So I signed up to get the Mojo Monday email every Monday that includes a sketch Challenge.  The card I made today is for my first Mojo Monday Challenge.  I've never done a challenge online before.  I figure if nothing else-it's inspires me to create cards that are a little out of my box.  I guess we all need to get outside of our boxes sometime! 

STAMP SETS: Valentine Defined (tree), Bold Blossom (butterflies), and Fabulous Phrases (word)
CARDSTOCK: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi
INK: Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso
DSP: Wild Wasabi DSP
WOW FACTORS: 5/8 Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Jewelry Tag Punch, Basic Jewels

On a change of subject.....I actually created another piece of art today.  It's my worst yet.  No honestly-I've never been more disappointed in my artistic abilities.  The use of the purple nail polish wasn't quite the look I was going for.   Why didn't I think to use clear?
Yes, it's true....I broke a bottle of nail polish on my carpet today.  I was furious with myself.  It's going to be a pretty penny to fix it.  Oh, well....I'm a klutz.  My husband knew it when he married me.  Not much to do about it now!
