Mojo Monday on Tuesday

I was really excited about the MOJO Monday sketch yesterday, but I didn't get to work on it for a variety of reasons, but mostly because my husband was feeling like he never saw me any more because I was always down in my craft room. 



In the meantime, I found a couple of other card challenges that would work well together with the MOJO Monday sketch and had some time to plan my design in my head. Also, I  am really excited because I've been looking everywhere for the MS branch punch, and when I went to the local craft store, I found this instead - Spellbinders Shapeabilities Foliage.  I just love the look of the little feathery fronds.



The other challenges were The Shabby Tearoom's Colorful Confections with a pink, green and aqua palette and the use of a tag, as well as The Paper Players Challenge #85 - Spring Has Sprung.

So without further ado, here is my card creation:


I used Pretty in Pink, Pool Party and Certainly Celery for my colours.  The stamp sets I used were SU's Always, Just Believe and Hello, Doily, which I've been wanting to use for a long time but couldn't quite figure out how to fit in.  I stamped the doily in Pretty In Pink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  The ribbon is SU's ruffled ribbon in Pool Party and the design paper is from SU's Beau Chateau.  The flowers are Prima and Kaisercraft.



The colours really make me think of spring, which I know we are all longing for.  It WILL come, just keep believing!

Thanks, LeAnne. Yes, I did spend some time with him and we're trying to figure out something he could do downstairs too so we can work in the same general area. His passion is working on his koi pond but not much to do with that in the winter!
