Trying to get my mojo on!

HI All!

Boy, it has been a while! That I get to stamp for fun, that is :)

I started things out with two challenges....a double header for you, so to say! lol!!

First, with the mojo monday sketch challenge and today's scs color challenge to use all neutrals with a pop of color.

here is the sketch:

Now, for the color challenge...I was at first leaning towards kraft card stock...we all know how I feel about kraft. hehehe!! And then I thought...black and greys are listen as neutrals as well.....so I went that route.
Here is what I came up with:
I am in a hurry - bet you couldn't have guessed that, huh? My little one has an ENT Dr. appointment in a bit that we need to get going for.

Somethings I wanted to point out though are: I used the bride specialty paper and a brayer in basic grey and basic black for my designer series paper. That is right!!! My designer series paper started out as white on white paper. You can brayer color over it and wipe off the design...and voila! you have coordinating designer series paper to match anything!!! Also, I misted this with my homemade shimmer spray from my platinum shimmer paint. Now, usually I just mist lightly and hold the card pretty far away from the mist....but today I wanted a spotchy shimmery color all over my whisper white sentiment area - grunge and elegance, is there a better combination?? lol!!!

Here is a closer look at the flowers:
