MOJO 213 and ColorQ 109

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Well, I have been struggling with the MOJO sketch since Monday.

I just couldn't settle on a design that I liked.  I thought the interesting color combo at ColourQ would help.

Even combining these two fabulous challenges, I still struggled.  I finally ended up with this.

I think I had the most trouble with that small vertical layer behind the flower in the graphic.  I just couldn't decide what to do there and I tried a few variations before I used a bit of striped grosgrain ribbon gathered in the center.  The polka-dotted designer paper is from Jolly Holiday, the flower is Verve, and the sentiment is from Tagtastic and Vintage Labels.  I topped the flower with a pumpkin pie corduroy button.

I'm not entirely sure that I like the end result and if I have time I might try something else with this interesting color combo.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love your card! I have some of that SU ribbon and I have never used it because of lack of inspiration! Thanks for inspiring me with a way to use that ribbon is such a cute way! Great card!!

I think you managed quite well--the colors were challenging to me and to combine it with a sketch---well, you're a better stamper than I am!! Thanks for playing with the CQC this week!

Love your card...I had a bit of trouble with the colors too. Your orange flower, ribbon and fun center button pop off the page with their brilliant contrast to all the darker colors in the background, great job! :)
