MOJO 207 and ColourQ 103

Friday, September 23, 2011

This has been a very busy week for me and tonight is the first time since Sunday that I've had a chance to sit down in my stamp room and create something.  I'm quite sure that my mojo has deserted me because it took forever for me to decide what I wanted to do!

I ended up making a card for the latest MOJO Monday sketch challenge.  MOJO Monday has been on vacation for the last couple of weeks, so I think I was the victim of some pent-up demand for their sketch.

Then I turned to the lastest ColourQ for my color palette.  The colors this week are attention grabbing.

Not the sort of colors I would expect to see in late September, but perhaps that is why this challenge appealed to me so much.  Wisteria Wonder is the new "purple" that I think is just wonderful.  I've hardly used it, but that doesn't mean that I don't love it. 

I knew that the Berry Blossoms designer paper included some of these colors, so I used some of it for my card.

I'm not sure you can tell, but the little flowers have been colored in both Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade.  The sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade.  Initially I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the little bow treatment in the sketch, but ended up going with a bit of scrunchy ribbon tied in a bow.

It's good to be back in my stamp room and I hope that this weekend I can spend some more time there.  I'm so behind on the challenges that I like to do, that I'd like to sneak a few in before they expire.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
