After going through the cards that I have recently posted on my Facebook Page, I realized that I have been using the same colors/papers on all of my cards. SO when I started playing with the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card for this week, I decided to switch up the colors and papers and use the Charlotte paper pack from the current CTMH Seasonal Expressions catalog. When I first saw this paper pack, I fell in love with the soft tones of Slate and Sorbet with having Black as the accent.
After I had the papers chosen and the card mostly put together, I started searching for a stamp set to go with it and found the New Baby stamp set that came out in the Close to my Heart Annual Inspirations book. I just LOVE the sweet little animals that are in this set! The elephant was PERFECT for these papers because I could make him gray to match the color scheme!!

Hope this inspires you to move out of your comfort zone and try using different color schemes to create your cards! I LOVE bright and cheery colors, so using these softer tones was a bit out of my comfort zone...
Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!
