A challenge or 2 - KW 37 & Mojo 68
Today is the first day in what seems like ages that I've been able to sit down & make something. So, ready to go, I called & called on my mojo, but it wasn't taking any notice so, I decided to try using a sketch to get me started. Enter, my first try at Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday sketch 68 (or Mojo Friday in my case) Then, I saw Kristina's colour challenge 37 was up, so I decided to have a go at combining the two. Imagine my surprise when I realised that Kristina's colours would work beautifully with some of new 'Bali Breeze' paper & ever so cute felt flowers. Yay! So off I went. Here's the challenges.......& here's what I came up with.I had to substitute bashful blue for baja breeze, as we don't have it yet (although I think the blue in the paper is baja breeze?). I was pretty happy with how it came together. The only thing I'm not as happy with is the greeting, as I couldn't quite find one that suited the shape & style I wanted. But hey, it's complete, so it's all good! Anyway, I hope you like my first of hopefully more challenge cards to come.
Thanks for checking it out & happy stamping!
