Last Minute Mojo Monday and OCC

I like to have the sketch in front of me when I'm creating, and since I don't have an actual "stamping area" complete with computer like some of my lucky stamping buddies, I copy it down onto paper and take it to my stamping spot (aka the part of the dining room table that I've taken over).

I sat down, with full intention of working on the Mojo Monday sketch and got totally distracted with some of the other papers that were sitting out. When all was said and done, I had created eight (yes, EIGHT!) cards and the Mojo Monday card (which I managed to combine with the OCC challenge to use three different embellies) was the last one I least for now...because I can still feel the mojo flowing, so there may yet be more creating to be done!

Here's the card I came up with, using the Mojo Monday 95 Sketch:

I used Bella Bleu DSP and Kraft, Very Vanilla & Not Quite Navy Cardstock. Not Quite Navy is quickly becoming one of my favourite colours and I know that the next time I place a Stampin' UP! order, I'll be adding a pack of Not Quite Navy to it!

Here's the inside:
What do you think?

STAMPS: Simply Said
INK: Not Quite Navy
PAPERS: Very Vanilla, Kraft and Not Quite Navy Cardstock; Bella Bleu DSP
ACCESSORIES: Twill, Brads, Prima Flower, Acrylic Flower

Happy Stampin'!
