CC265 ~ Color Challenge Sample

I came home from my parents on Sunday, and I had 244 emails waiting for me. One of them was a PM from Betty, the Color Challenge Hostess on SCS. She wanted to know if I would be interested in creating a sample for the challenge this week. I was so excited and scared to death at the same time. I think I read the email 3 times before I took a breath. I PM'd her back to tell her that I would be honored to create a card for the challenge. Then she sent me the colors -- Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, and Soft Suede. The dessert option was to use your crimper.

Can you say OH NO? What was I going to create with these colors? I had no idea -- NOTHING was popping in my head. I hadn't created a card in several days, and I find that my MOJO slips away if I don't create a card every day. Does that happen to you? I decided to stop stressing, and wait until the morning. Then I thought what would be better to start my MOJO moving than the sketch from the MOJO Monday site? So as you can see I created this card with this week's MOJO Monday Sketch.

I flipped the sketch, but it's still the same. The turquoise and celery layers are from the Flocked Together DP. I used the crimper on the vertical piece. The crimper makes the DP look like ribbon IRL. I created a Puffy Flower, since I am truly addicted to these flowers -- I know I need to go to puffy flower rehab :o).

Thanks for stopping by!!

Gorgeous card, Corie! Congrats on being asked to do a sample for the SCS color challenge - you did a great job on it using the Mojo sketch. I'm snickering 'cause the celery and turquoise are a couple of my favorite colors! I love the look of the crimped paper, too, you're right, it does look like ribbon. Very pretty! :)

Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. Take care!

I am loving these flowers you make. They add so much to the card! My mojo has been missing for awhile. I have had some little "piles" of papers/images/embellies of coordinating things to start cards that never quite evolved. I have spent the morning putting it away in hopes of jump starting some creativity. I am highly motivated to create :) Just snooping around for just the right sketch! Your blog always inspires me, Corie.
