I absolutely love this week's sketch (#281) created by Mary Fish over at the Mojo Monday blog. It's clean, it's simple, and lends itself well to coordinating pattern papers within the circles. I knew it would be the perfect design for my masculine card.
Once I had the sketch selected, then I needed to pick a color scheme. Today, The Play Date Cafe (in partnership with the Twinery) offered up this color scheme to the left--stone, buttercream and denim. Unfortunately, I didn't have any Twinery twine in the right colors so I had to substitute with gold and royal embroidery floss. I really wish I had their Buttercream bakers twine...it would have been the perfect finishing touch.
Here is the card that I created (with the help of my "Play Date with Mojo"...
|Supplies: Pattern paper by K& Company and Echo Park, Lattice stamp by Savvy Stamps, |
birthday present from unknown source, small sentiment stamp by Hero Arts.
I'll be entering this card in both the Mojo Monday Sketch #281 challenge and The Play Date Cafe challenge #170. But first, I better get this card in the mail before I miss Ben's birthday!
