Mojo Monday Challenge

Hi Everyone:  Since returning from Japan, I have been struggling with my Mojo.  It's probably the jet lag and it better be over soon.  What better way to help with the Mojo by making a card using the Mojo Monday challenge.

Then it was, what colours do I want to use.  So, I took inspiration from the Summer Smooches collection.  
This collection will be in the new 2012-13 catalogue, but for you, Stampin' Up! is having a preview and you can order this collection through the month of April.  

Stamps: Triple Treat Flower – (w – 122909, $10.95 p. 18 2011-2012 IB&C)
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Summer Smooches DSP
Ink: Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Big Shot, Lattice Embossing Folder, Punches: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, Fancy Flower, 5-Petal Flower, 1/2” Circle Punch

The Triple Treat Flower is a "a-la-carte" stamp which is very versatile and works well for a clean and simple card.  The flower was stamped 3 times with the different colour inks, punched out and layered for a dimensional look.  

Have a wonderful day.  The sun is shining here and I am going out to enjoy some company with a couple of friends.

Until next time...
