Stars and Stamps Sketch #80

I know I've been MIA for a few days, but my creative spark has fizzled. I just felt burned out, so I've been working on a scrapbook project in the meantime. I made time to do the OWH stars and stamps sketch challenge#80, and this is what I came up with although it doesn't completely fit the sketch. Ah well, they say a sketch is just a starting point, so that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! LOL
I pulled out some scraps for this one, and used an inchie stamp from SU, coloring it with markers before stamping. The white panel underneath the ribbon strips was scored on the Scor-pal for a little added interest. I originally used a large metal flower brad to gather the ribbons, but after it was all glued down it was much too small, so I got out the metal glue and adhered a flower with a matching brad right over the top. It worked and it's fastened permanently now, so I can't change my mind again :)
I'm going in search of my mojo now, so if anyone sees it, please send it back home! Thanks! Have a fantastic day!

Well now, there you are! Good to see you again! This is truly sweet. And folks, if you could see this awesome little scrapbooking project she has been lost in, trust me the mojo is not hiding.

Carol, You'd never know your MoJo was missing. Your card is very, very nice. All your papers go so well together. I love that little inchie and your brads bring it all together so nicely. Now I've got busy and make my sketch card. I also lost my MoJo this weekend. Talk soon.
