For Mojo Monday 175

Have made my first card ever! (Well, ok, the last one i made was when i was in high school, i think, and that's been ages ago!)  Am going to submit it to the Mojo Monday blog.  They have weekly sketches.  I think am starting to like sketches; kinda help me focus on just one goal because i usually have lots of ideas i'd like to try but don't just know which one to begin with.

Have also joined the making-greeting-cards group and they're very warm over there, made me feel very welcome.  They have swaps and challenges too! Might be joining the challenges, and then the swaps later on. 

You can find the Mojo Monday sketch here.

Here's my version of the sketch:



Here's a close-up.

Materials:
Cardstock
Patterned papers: Basic Grey Olivia (from the 6x6 pad)
Brad:  Basic Grey
Trinket pins:  Maya Road
Green tulle: BBP


Let me know what you think.  Constructive criticisms are welcome :)

Thanks for looking!

Very pretty card..the kind you like to leave out on display all the time as an accent to your home.

Thanks so much, Peggy! However, if i leave it around in the house, my boys will also leave their own accents to it LOL!
