Mojo Thanks!


I have decided that if I am going to participate in all of the challenges that I enjoy, I am going to need to combine them on occasion. Since I never got the energy to stamp yesterday, I decided to comine today's Color Challenge from SCS and this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I really liked the springy colors and it gave me an excuse to use the one image from "Friends 24-7" that I haven't used yet. I hope you aren't getting sick of this set, because it is one of my new faves. I thought this card really showed the versatility that this set has. I also paired it with the "Friendly Words" Jumbo wheel (surprise, surprise)!



I used a blender pen to color the image using Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette and Perfect Plum. I used the "Bella Toile" BG stamp using Pink Pirouette ink on Pink Pirouette cardstock. I used a button from the Button Bouquet assortment, using linen thread to thread it. I secured it with a glue dot. I tied a simple bow of white taffeta ribbon and added some piercing to finish it off. There was a time when *every* card I made had piercing on it somewhere. I rarely pierce and more, so I thought it was time to add a little.

This card is *almost* SUO. I used PTI white and foam squares, but those things could be swapped out easily to make this 100% SUO.

Since being sick, I got a little behind on Valentine's projects. I will probably be posting only Valentine's designs for the rest of the week. I have things I would like to make for my kid's teachers and such. Thanks for fluttering by!
