Mojo Monday Challenge #69


Here's this week's Mojo Monday Challenge. Last week's was so fun, I thought I'd give it a whirl again. Who knew I would get so excited by these challenges! I think one of the reason's I like them is because you don't have to figure out what the layout of a card is. Instead you're confined to a layout and you need to use your creativity to fill it. Does that make sense? If you haven't tried one yourself, I would encourage you to do so. You might get hooked as well! For today's card, I've been wanting to use the "Little Somethin'" stamp set, which is a new hostess stamp set in the upcoming Stampin'Up! Spring-Summer Catalog. I've also been wanting to use the colors from the cover of the book "Friday Night Knitting Club", which incidently is the book selection for one of the book clubs I'm in. Yes - believe it or not, I belong to two! Well, enough rambling from me. Here's what I came up with:

What do you think? It's a little bit out of my element, but I wanted to try something different. I used the following:
*Baroque Motif stamp set for the flourish and "Rockstar" stamp from the Little Something' stamp set
*Rose Red, Summer Sun, Old Olive, Whisper White, Basic Grey and Basic Black cardstock
*Rose Red and Basic Black stamp pads
*Scallop Edge, big and little star, 1 3/4" and 1" circle punches
Thanks for visiting!
