Mojo Monday # 121

Hi all!!! I thought it was about time to update my poor It feels like forever since I did a Mojo Monday sketch and I know its Friday today, but I had some spare time so off to my craft room I went! Better late that never I say.he he! I was following the sketch when I started but then as my card started to progress it changed slightly but hey you get that!.lol. I hadn't inked up animal stories since I got it and thought it was about time I did. I used Windsor knot DSP and the card stock to match. And I found some sage Shadow ribbon in my stash from last year which went perfectly. If you have the time make sure you check out all the other entries here!
