The Midnight Oil

OK Guys so look at this.
No matting! 
OK, there's one mat but its black. Is this a first for me? I thinkie so.
I just felt like doing something totally different. I think its the artsy image brings out the eccentric in me.
I even got out the white craft paint and went smudgy with it. How fun is that!
OK, so can you guess what the challenge is this week at Mo's?
You guessed it!

I really love all you did on this card. I wish I had time and a place to make cards, but my space is all messed up while it's being organized. (Yeah, that's a joke. I'd cry if it would help.) hugs, dj
