Mojo #79

Another fun Mojo Monday sketch - yippee! I've got several stamping friends in the Creative Consortium who are now following the Mojo Monday blog. I hope you ladies are working up some great cards - I want to see them at our get together on Sunday...

This is Julee's sketch:

My version of Mojo #79:

I LOVE this color combination - Sage Shadow, Cameo Coral and Basic Black. Don't these colors just pop? I also used a Texturz Plate with my Big Shot and paper pierced part of the background, just to try something a little different. It gives the background a quilted look.

My sister- and brother-in-law are coming today for a visit, along with their three kids. We will have 5 kids in the house, ages 6, 5, 4, 3, and 2 - WOW! It will be crazy and fun. My kids are so excited, they have been telling random strangers all week that their cousins are coming to our house to play. :) I don't know that I will get much stamping done this weekend, but I do NEED to start working on my trades for the Minneapolis Regional. Have a great weekend!

Great card Jen! I really like those colors together and the paper pierced texture background is really does make it look quilted. I love it!

Great color combo - I'm always looking for a new combo using Cameo Coral, so I'll be adding this one to my list! Your card is so beautiful - love it!!

AWESOME card girly!! Love the paper piercing you did on your embossed back ground as it does give a cool quilted effect... so elegant! Have a super weekend with your company and enjoy... :)

PS - Have fun at Regional’s in Minneapolis!!!!

Beautiful card. Great idea for the background - I will definitely have to try that on a card of my own. And love the colour combo - not one that I would have though of and it looks fantastic!
