Mojo Monday Week 104 Sketch Challenge

The Mojo Monday sketch this week was a tough one for me. I needed a Thank You card for tomorrow, so I was restricted to that idea. I wanted to use this sketch for everything but a thank you card today!! Here is what I came up with:

I like this card better in person than in the pictures. The pictures fail to capture that I used dimensionals on the circles, so it's not as flat as it appears in the pictures. I used Sage Shadow, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, and Kraft for this card. The kraft background paper was made using a couple stamps from the Circle Circus stamp set. I used the same set on the strip of Melon Mambo paper. The thank you sentiment was from the Taggers Dozen stamp set. Both the circles and the flower/leaves were cut out using the Big Shot (Circles #2 and Birds and Bloom). I finished the card off with a few embellishments - eyelets and a filigree Brad.

This is not my favorite card, but I do really love the color combination. I'll be playing around with this color combination more this week.


  1. This is a very nice Thank You card! Love your color combo!

  2. Great card!!! Love your take on the layout - lovely colors too.


Welcome to my site!!

I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
