Mojo Monday Week 105

Time for another Mojo Monday sketch. I combined this challenge with the SCS Color Combination 236 challenge. Here is the Mojo Monday challenge:

and the CC236 challenge was to use Pretty in Pink, Whisper White and Soft Suede. Here is my card:
I'm in the fall/christmas mood, but the pink and color screamed valentines day, so I went that directions. This card was very simple to make, and used my Big Shot to cut out the button and hearts. I used a circle punch to cut out the 7 circles, and used Stampin' Write markers to make the faux stitching on all of the circles.

I was originally going to use the soft suede ribbon on it's solid side, but when I finally put the card together, I really liked the look of the polka dot. Look below for all ingredients of this card.

Tips from this card:
-Even the little details can make a difference. Make use of the texturz plates with the Big Shot as I did on the large heart. It helps to break up the 'white space', and adds that finishing detail.

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.
