Mojo Monday

Hello everyone! I am happy to say it's the last Mojo Monday Challenge of February - my least favorite month of the year!  The weather has been brutal with the coldest temps we've had in VA in MANY years!  Came home from work last Thursday night and it was 2 degrees - not counting the wind chill factor! Saturday, we got a foot of snow dumped on us! So, I'm not sad that this month will soon be history.

It's time for a tall and skinny creation this week, so I went with a 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" card.

I recently ordered this paper pack from MME that has the prettiest peachy tones paired with black and gold.  I'm a happy girl with gold making a comeback in papercrafting!  These poppies haven't seen ink in awhile, so thought they'd work perfectly with these elegant papers. I added black enamel accents to the centers and fussy cut the leaves after stamping with Beanstalk dye ink by WPlus9.  I liked that the paper design on the black panel fit the sketch so perfectly!
