MOJO 180 ColourQ 74 Gratitude

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

I almost didn't attempt the Colour Q challenge this week.  Once again the swatch looked great, the design teams cards were beyond inspirational, but I was afraid I wouldn't be able to pull it off.  I'm always a little apprehensive when I see loads of colors that I'm expected to put together in one card.  In the end, since I figured that challenging myself is the ultimate goal here, I decided to give it a go and paired it with the MOJO sketch challenge.  Here's what I was dealing with:


As usual, the last MOJO sketch of the month is a choice between round or square.  I decided to go with square.  I almost did the round one (because it's been quite a while since I did one of those), but I think I'll wait until next month to try that!  As for the color challenge, unfortunately I don't have any more Bordering Blue (which is a shame since it was an awesome color), so I substituted Baja Breeze instead.

It was a little tricky putting those circles together and the middle one is a bit low, but I think they pass muster.  To make them I punched a 3/4-inch circle then positioned the 1-inch circle punch around the hole to make the circle outline you see here.  It's a neat look and easy to do if you don't have one of those fancy border die-cuts!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
