It has been a while since I have played along with the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. SO yesterday when my friend Nicki stopped by to "play" for a bit, I thought it would be fun to check out the blog to see the current sketch and create a card using some new papers that I bought a few weeks ago.
The papers are NOT CMTH (GASP!!). I know! I was really needing some fresh papers and colors to play with a few weeks ago....SO I went to my local Archiver's on a mission to find some fun 6x6 paper packs. WELL let me tell you....I found a TON of cute 6x6 paper packs! I found so many that I had to limit myself and put some of them back! I ended up buying 6! Not to mention the 3 that I had purchased a few weeks before that......
ANYHOO....Onto the card.....
This card was created using the "Winter Park" 6x6 paper pad from "echo park paper co." The rest of the embellishments and stamping was from CTMH. The stamp set used is "Snowflakes", the ribbon is from the "Designer Ribbon Blue Collection" and the sparkles used are CTMH as well.
The background paper for this card was a bit too plain, SO I stamped snowflakes with White Daisy Pigment Ink from CTMH then I added a sparkle in the center of a few of the snowflakes for a bit more dimension. MUCH MORE BETTERER!! lol
That is going to do it for today.....
I hope that this has inspired you to check out the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and create one of your own!!
Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!

Mojo Monday 219....My Card
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
