Mojo Monday, still better late than never!

Why is it that I can never seem to "Mojo my Monday" (as Jonathan puts it), on a MONDAY? The week just seems to get away from me...crazy! Especially considering Monday is really not that busy of a day. Sure, I wash the sheets, dust and water the plants, but that's pretty much it...short of feeding the kids and doing a load of laundry. Not exactly time consuming.

And yet, here it is SUNDAY again before I manage to upload my Mojo MONDAY card! *SIGH*

Anyway, there's still a little time left, so if you want to Mojo YOUR Monday (on a Sunday) you can find the sketch here.

Here's the card I came up with:

I used the new Level 1 Hostess Set, Country Morning and stamped the image using Soft Suede on Very Vanilla. I coloured it in using my SU! Markers in Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery before cutting it into a circle and sponging the edges. Then I mounted it on slightly larger circle cut from Soft Suede.

I don't have any of the DSP that coordinates with Soft Suede yet, so I made my own using Soft Suede and Bashful Blue ink on a couple of the flowers from my Simply Said stamp set.

I sponged the edges of everything (including the card base) using Soft Suede. I added the 3/4" twill for the finishing touch.

What do you think?

STAMPS: Level 1 Hostess Set: Country Morning, Simply Said
INK: Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Soft Suede
PAPER: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
ACCESSORIES: Circle Scissor, 3/4" Twill, Sponges

Happy Stampin'!
