Mojo Monday + Color Challenge CC201

Holy cow! I thought I would try my hand at a couple of the challenges out there this week. Shouldn't take too long, right? Uh...yeah.

I saw this layout over at the Mojo Monday blog and I really liked it! I've only tried one other Mojo Monday sketch, so I thought, "Why not?" It seemed so simple... Anyway, this was actually my second attempt at this sketch. I'll post the first card I made tomorrow. I'm not sure if I love it or hate it... :)

So, after my first wacky attempt at the sketch, I decided to combine it with the color challenge for the week on Splitcoast: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, and Kraft. I immediately thought of this set - A Little Birdie Told Me - and wanted to use the scallop die with my Big Shot. And then I got stuck! It took me awhile to get this all together and I'm still not sure if I'm crazy about it - maybe there's too many polka dots. Can there be such a thing? Let me know what you think!

Stamps: A Little Birdie Told Me, Polka Dot background stamp
Paper: Kraft, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Baja Breeze dsp, Kraft dsp
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze
Accessories: 3/4" circle punch, 1" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, Button Bouquet, Caramel gingham ribbon, Big Shot, Scallop Circle #2 die, Coluzzle, Mat Pack, paper piercer, white gel pen

I love your card! It's adorable! I thought the sketch was fun too.
Those colors really go well together and I don't think there are too many polka dots:)

beautiful card!!! and never too many polka dots for me. i DID struggle with finding the right circle to go inside the scalloped circle (started CASEing this last night) - ended up using a nesties circle. i never got comfortable with the coluzzle. have not used this set in a year - thanks for bringing it out again cause it is a CUTIE!!!
