Mojo Monday #76

There are so many great challenges out there that it's hard to keep up and play along with all of them. So, sometimes the easiest option is to combine a couple of challenges together. That's what I've done with this week's Mojo Monday sketch...I wanted to try this one and I also wanted to try this week's Colour Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers...CC208 Pink Chocolate Kiwi! The combo was so unusual (Pink Passion, Chocolate Chip & Kiwi Kiss) that I just had to see if I could make it work. Of course we don't have Kiwi Kiss here just yet, so Old Olive did a great job standing in. This is what I came up with:
Pretty wild huh? Please excuse the grass...the light was fading and I had to take this one outside :) This is not a card that you could just stick in an envelope to post...there are so many layers up on Dimensionals, not to mention that enormous bow, that it wouldn't fit in a normal envie. I'm going to have to send this one off in a padded bag!!!

Paper: Pink Passion, Old Olive & Choc Chip CS, Petals & Paisleys DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, VersaMark
Stamps: Priceless
Other: Old Olive brads, Olive American Crafts buttons, Chocolate polka dot organza ribbon (came in a Lime Tart kit & I can't find the manufacturer...sorry), Mat Pack & piercing tool, Dimensionals.

It's been a long day, so I'm off to veg in front of the TV,

Great combination of colours and design. I especially love the added touch of the grass in the background. It really sets off the card.

This turned out great Kristie!

Yeah glad to see you found your creativity again, it's gorgeous

Leslie Hanna said...

Lovely! I, too, tend to combine challenges, and it's a challenge in itself!

About that bow - I often wonder (in general) at some people's creations, cuz how are you supposed to mail (post) the darn things!?!?!?! :-)

I like the bow, and for a special person, it would sooo be worth the bubble envelope!

lauren said...

yowza! gotta love a card that can multitask, right?! ;) especially one as ♥FAB♥ as this!

(ps: i sooooooooo hear ya on the subject of overly enthusiastically dimensional creations & padded mailers!!! yet another reason i never ever stress over cardsize and envies...chances are...that will NOT be the determining factor in my case!)
