Charming Mojo mingles with the Raspberry Challenge

Good morning! Between my unpacking from the weekend and doing laundry last night, I managed to eek out a card for 2 challenges. I love it when that happens! That kind of creative efficiency is something I strive for :) If only that were the case all the time, huh?! I think that seems to happen more frequently when the color palette is one that I'm familiar with, so Dawn's colors for the Raspberry Suite15 Challenge were definitely just that - my comfort colors! Here are the Mojo 101 Sketch Challenge and Raspberry Suite 15 colors for you to check out:
I love both the colors and the sketch for these 2 challenges! The colors I used are all SU colors, as are all my supplies. I used Groovy Guava, Pixie Pink, Certainly Celery, and Very Vanilla. Here's my full card: If you don't recognize the stamp set, it's because it's a sneak peek from the Holiday Mini (available Sep 1)! Isn't it gorgeous? All the stamps (except for the Thank You sentiment) are from the set called "Charming." If you take a close look at my pink birdie, you'll see that it's got some shimmer to it. That's also from a new product in the mini called Shimmer Paint - so pretty! It gives the cardstock a pearly, shimmery sheen. I applied it with a sponge dauber and it dries quick! I also made the Certainly Celery cardstock look a little aged by using another sponge dauber to burnish on some Certainly Celery ink all over the cardstock surface. Here's the full recipe.
