Brightening a Day with Mojo Monday!

I'm still working on cards for my grandma's card box.   As I see sketches that I think work for the Sonoma (X7143B) paper I'm using, I take a break from the Christmas Card Frenzy I've been in lately.  Today I took a Mojo Monday break!  I created this 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card for today's Mojo Monday:

I didn't have a flower that matched the color of the paper so I made my own color.  I haven't liked my past results changing the paper flowers with the sponging technique, so this time I tried something different.  I used our  Spray Pen (Z1380) with water and re-inker.   My 'purple' re-inker was Gypsy and if you are familiar with Close To My Heart colors, you know this is a pretty bright color.  I knew I would need to 'dull' it down a little so I added a drop of cocoa re-inker.   The result was an 'old fashioned' muted color which I think actually matches the paper pretty well.  

My Pewter frame, button and photo corner is from the Mini Medley Accents Pewter collection (1487).  I used cocoa ribbon through the button.

This is card #4 for my Sonoma Card Box.   If you missed Cards 1 - 3 and the box, these links will take you there:
