Color Me Mojo


This week's Mojo sketch was right up my alley.  No skewed panels or mega multiple panels to deal with - happy sigh :)    Thanks, Julee!

I decided to combine it with Verve's Color Me Spring Diva challenge as I love spring!  We got teased today by some lovely sunshine but starting tomorrow have another week of rain in the forecast :(

This lovely Imaginisce DP was my starting point.  I chose celery as my main colour (loooove this colour!!) and since the DP had flowers on it, I opted to stamp and pop us this delightful Verve butterfly from Petals and Stems in the focal circle.  Some pink ribbon, and a Martha Steward border punch along the bottom called it a card :) 

Have a fabulous day and I'll be back tomorrow with my Inkspirations card.





What's In It?
Stamps: (Verve) Petals and Stems
Paper: Certainly Celery, Imaginisce DP, Pretty in Pink

Ink: Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Martha Stewart Border Punch, Lacy Circle and Circle Nesties, Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Button, Glue Dot,  Half Pearls, Scor-Pal, Dimensinals

Um, yeah, I think I'd call it more than a card, how about gorgeousosity? (I just made that up, but it fits!) We should all be teased by sunshine like you! This is AMAZING! Beautiful paper and glorious flowers! Ok, I think I've used a lot of adjectives here, better save some for the next dreamy card...yikes! I did it again!

This card just says spring to me! What a beautiful, soft color scheme and perfect combination of feminine elements. Love the pearls you added along the border and the scored background!

Hoping you'll see some more sunshine soon!

Sure do love this delightful spring card! You've got so many wonderful details - scored BG, dimensional butterflies, etc. I noticed you finally got some sunshine as soon as I saw your post...it always lifts my spirits when the sun is out!
