4/16 Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge

Today is Mojo Monday and here is the card I made for it. Below is the card I created, along with my Home Depot advertisement that gave me the burst of inspiration I needed to get started on this card. Sketches are a fun way to create a card quickly . . . but sometimes you just don't have a clue what colors or which stamp set to use. That is when I get out my Inspiration Book. It's a 3-ring binder with page protectors. Whenever I page through a magazine and see something that I like, I tear it out and put it in my Inspiration Book. Most of my pages are from Country Living Magazine. I refer to it often and when my customers ask me how I get all my ideas, I drag it out to show them.

You might have noticed some unusual scallop edging on my card. It came about because I was too lazy to get out of my chair to get my scallop edge punch - and my scallop square was sitting right there on my desk! Laziness . . . the mother of my invention! lol! I took a picture of how I created the scallops for the top and the bottom of my image panel. A picture is worth a thousand words as they say!


Supplies I used to create this card:
Stamps: Close as a Memory, Fresh Cuts
Paper: Garden Green, So Saffron, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: White Craft, So Saffron, Apricot Appeal, Garden Green
Accessories: Heat Gun, White Embossing Powder, Big Shot Machine, SU Texturz Plate Backgrounds I, Scallop Square Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Mat Pack, Garden Green Marker to create the faux piercings, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Glue Dots, Pretties Kit, Dimensionals, Stipple Brush to put color onto the main image panel
