Mojo Monday 193

Happy Mojo Monday!  For the last week of the month, we like to mix things up and focus on non-traditional sized cards.  So since it's Round or Square week try a round card, a square card or both if you're feeling really inspired!!  {If you're not sure how to make a round card, I described my process in the 2nd paragraph of this post on my blog a few months ago.} 

This week's sketch may look tricky, but I promise it's easy "piece-y"! {grin}  The background is just a square cut into quarters along the diagonal so that you have four triangles. Then flip over two opposing sides and piece back together with tape. For the circle sketch, do the same thing, then just cut your circle from your pieced together square.
As always, feel free to substitute if you don't have a specific shape - just make the sketch work for you!  To play along, make a project using the provided sketch and upload it to your blog or online gallery. Then leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of this post.  There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but the linky form is scheduled to close at 8:00pm (Mountain) on Sunday night. That way there's no confusion which linky is the current one. If you upload to online galleries, please use keyword/tag MOJO193.

Click the link at the bottom of this post for the entry form.  Please type your name or screen name in the Caption or Title field, then choose the link and photo you'd like to enter.  Please link directly to your specific blog post with your card in it, and not your general blog url.

Note: If you're having problems linking (especially to SCS), try entering the link to your card, then choosing From File instead of From Web. Then just browse to where your picture is saved on your computer to get your thumbnail.

  4. loved the sketch - Sorry, I ended up posting three times - it didn't seem to be working for me. Now can someone tell me how I remove two of them - not sure.You can tell I am new to this linking thing.

  5. I adore this sketch! I entered a square card and really want to create a round card. Thanks for the fun Mojo challenge. The DT did a an amazing job.

  6. Very fun challenge! I somehow posted twice. Can you delete one of my links (#67 or #68)?

  7. I love this sketch. I think it will look great converted into a scrapbook page layout. I can't wait to give it a whirl!

  8. Fabulous sketch. Thanks for pushing me out of my comfort zone.

  9. Hi, this is my first time entering this challenge, I just love looking at all the other entrants, they are such lovely cards!

  12. I loved this sketch!
    All of you did a wonderful job with your inspiration!

  13. Finally posted... but thumbnail is blurry.

  14. Okay I surrender! I looked at the Mojo Monday sketch and said "I don't think so", square and round cards aren't in my comfort zone. Then I thought for a couple of days and said "Well, maybe I should try". Today I said "Go for it, it's a CHALLENGE"! If it was easy it wouldn't be a challenge. So here is my interpretation of the sketch.
