Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,

I have managed to achieve getting the Mojo Monday sketch done again. Yay Yay. I’ve also managed to combine it with the colour selection this week from Dynamic Duo’s. I’m on a roll! I have used Stampin’ Up’ new Labels Collection Framelits around the sentiment, which is from the Memorable Moments Stamp set.

Here is the sketch…

Mojo257Sketch and here is the colour scheme… DD#19

The colours this week I thought would be a bit of a challenge as I’m not really that 'into' them, however, I did have them and thought well, it’s an opportunity to use up the cardstock at the very least.
 I actually am quite pleased with how it turned out – although the colours really needed the Neutral Vanilla and Chocolate Chip to break down the bright Cajun Craze and lift the usually sombre Always Artichoke.


Embossing folders were the ever useful Vintage Wallpaper and the smaller strip of hearts embossing that is part of the Adorning Accents collection. Boho Blossom punch made the flowers from designer paper (Berry Blossoms from last year) and cardstock, a pearl finished them off nicely and the Little Leaves sizzlit adds just the right touch.

I wanted a fairly large scallop to be showing on the Cajun Craze, so I cheated and used the 1/2” Circle punch, sticking them in a row on the back of the Chocolate Chip band to look like a scallop edge.

Hope my card has left you inspired to use some of the colours you are not so keen on, you just never know what you’ll come up with!

Have a great day!

Well, for not being into these colours that much, you've created something wonderful! Love all the different die cuts you used!
