MOJO MONDAY CHALLENGE

I've mentioned before how challenges get me working. It helps to force me to try new things, or look at things in a different way. On Mojo Monday - The Blog they post a new sketch challenge every Monday. This is the sketch for today:
I chose to make the square card and here is the result:
I've used the Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini, and I cut my circles with the Circle Scissors, which after a bit of a learning curve, I've learned to love! The cardstock colours used are So Saffron, Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery, and Pretty in Pink. The satin ribbon is Old Olive (got to order the Certainly Celery!!) The sentiment is from Whimsical Words (Occasions Mini) stamped in Orchid Opulence on Very Vanilla.

I don't usually make 5"x5" cards because they use more cardstock. But the size is impressive and great for those Very Special cards you want to send. You can envelopes to fit them on page 168 of the Idea Book & Catalogue.

Please leave me a message to let me know if listing the materials and their item numbers is helpful (see below for an example). Thanks!
