Today I made a card for Mojo Monday Challenge 180. I don't think I've ever made a round card before, so I figured it was time I give it a try! I wasn't sure what to do at first because I've made so many fancy, feminine cards lately I wanted to take a short break from them. After taking a minute to look at the sample, the idea of using the smaller circle as the moon popped into my mind...and of course, I had to use my sponges to create that effect. So, I got busy, sponged away and this is what I came up with. Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

To create the sponging effect, just start lightly sponging and keep doing it until it's as dark as you would like. Then start with the next color making sure they overlap to create the blended effect. I do have one stripe that stands out, but I did that on purpose to try and follow the Mojo sketch having two circles and one rectangle.
