Mojo-licious Monday! I found my Mojo in Vegas!


I love Julee's blog Poetic Artistry and did my first Mojo Monday Challenges last week. Wel, I am hooked to her site and had to try the challenge for this week. I can't believe that I am making the card for this challenge so late in the week  - but hey! at least some mojo has been found :) These challenges are so much fun! Here is the challenge for this week: 

 I can't even tell you HOW much fun I had with this card! How much you ask..?

 Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much (LOL!). Since this was the first Monday of the month - that means its time for the Mojo Madness Contest. So I wanted my card to be extra mojo-licious and suddenly thought of a the bright and glitzy town of Vegas. So here is what I slapped together :

The sentiment reads: Hope you hit the Jackpot! and was done on the computer imitating the Vegas font. Its nice to have a different kind of Good Luck card in my basket. The card was fairly fast to put together - the slot machine is from Jolee's Boutique, the background DP is from a mixed media pack from Colorbok. The three silver brads are from Spare Parts and was a perfect addition because they kinda look like coins for the slot machine. 
I have to admit that I went a little crazy with my Diamond Stickles on the DP because I was trying to make a glitzy casino background - I love stickles - its amazing how they can make a card pop. I could have stickled the whole DP, but I was starting to run out - and that was the only thing that made me stop :)

In the packet that the slot machine came from, there were also 6 little poker chips - which fit perfectly with the 6 scallops on the card (which was made with a circle cutter).  I love when things like that fit together.

I really had fun with this card. 
It's so great when you feel so happy after making a card. 

Hope all of you are having a lovely saturday!
Ciao for now
