Bright Funky Mojo

Hello, I’ve managed to fit in the Mojo Monday sketch again this week and I’ve used the colours in The Paper Players challenge too. I’m not usually that organised lol. I also couldn’t believe my luck in finding some red cotton that was Poppy Parade all over, though my sewing is a bit skewiff!


This is the sketch….

and this is the colour theme…

I added a Dimensional Flower for the challenge at SUO challenges, and it was made using the Blossom Petals Builder punch and the matching stamp set Build a Blossom. That is exactly what I’ve done – built a blossom. Just as well I could use my inks to make up the colours I needed because the only cardstock I had was the Daffodil Delight! 

Can you see the little hearts on the banner? This was made using the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in the Adorning Accents set that you will find in the current Winter Mini Catalogue (there’s a link to the catty on the side bar – check it out!). I also used a Baja Breeze Stampin’ Write marker to colour over the raised hearts.

I’ve decorated the inside too! I had a little circle of Daffodil Delight cardstock leftover due to making my circle slightly smaller than I originally thought. I really loathe throwing out little bits like this and I thought it made a nice accent for your written words on the inside. It did look a bit lonely so I stamped a flower with the same stamp set in the bottom corner. I love how versatile the Build a Blossom is!

Perhaps the girls at Card Crafters Circle will let me join their Rainbow Bright challenge – with half the colours of the rainbow but certainly Bright!

Don’t forget to check out the new offer from Stampin’ Up – it involves a FREE paper pack! Check it out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by  – I’ll be back with more in a day or two, that blasted work is getting in the way again! lol.

Have a great day Smile

vicki, I think the stitching adds character to your card, too. I love that you turned an "oops" on the circle cutting into a positive by placing it on the inside. Such an unexpected surprise and I love it. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week
