Cool Colors and Texture for Sketch Challenge Card

Mojo Monday

mojo485I’m spending a lazy, gray Presidents’ Day at home with my son, the Wii and my craft room (not necessarily in that order). We had plans for the zoo, but the drizzle and cool breezes changed our minds on that outing. So instead of enjoying the unusually warm February weather outdoors, I decided to get a jump on this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge (yup, and it’s only Monday). This week’s sketch is a fun, multi-layered design that easily translates into a card with some great texture and colors.

The Sweetest Thing 6×6 paper pack from My Mind’s Eye was the inspiration for this card, and I used four different patterns from that pack. I simply love the colors in this collection! I added some twine and buttons to the design and inked all the edges for a fun card with loads of interest. With a simple stamped sentiment, this cute little thing can be used for many different occasions.

    What a pretty card! I, too, have that stamp.

      Thanks, Dodie. Do you know what the stamp set is called? I have another reader asking for that information, but I have long since ditched the packaging on this set.

    Love your card… and the sentiment. What is the brand and name of the stamp set you used?

      Thank you, Mary Anne. I have no idea what the stamp set is called or who created it, but I’ve asked another reader for the info because she has the same set. Thanks for stopping by for a look.

    Such a lovely card! I love your paper choices and how the buttons add just the right touch.

      Yay, I’m so glad you like the buttons, because I just picked up this new stash at Tuesday Morning a couple of weeks ago. I love buttons! Thanks for stopping by, Tammy.

    Love your card. The paper is so pretty and you put it all together so nicely.

      Thank you so much, Carmela. I really can’t take credit for the paper combo, especially when I simply pull from the same pack, but thank you for your kind words. I’m so glad you like the card.
