Blooming Mojo

#stampinup   #saleabration2016   I love the clean and simple sketches on the Mojo Monday challenge blog. This week's sketch is no exception. I didn't really have a plan when I started the card, except that I wanted to use some of the fabulous Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper before Sale-a-Bration ends this month. Don't forget: You can get this beautiful DSP FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration! Contact me now to place an order before it's gone forever.

I chose the Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss vine sheet of DSP, which set my colors for the card. Since this DSP pattern had a lot of white space, I continued that idea with my card. I cut a 1-1/2" x 3-7/8" strip of the DSP and backed it with a 1-5/8" strip of Old Olive Card Stock so it wouldn't blend into the Whisper White panel.

For the circular part of the sketch, I stamped the sunburst from the "Kinda Eclectic" set in Old Olive onto a Whisper White panel. I adhered this to a Blackberry Bliss mat and then onto an Old Olive card base. I adhered the DSP strip to the card.

I thought the "Happy Blooming Birthday" sentiment from the "Flower Patch" stamp set would be perfect for this CAS card. I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss at the bottom of a 2-5/8" x 3" piece of Whisper White. I backed this with a just larger size of Blackberry Bliss and adhered it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the finishing touch, I added a Whisper White Classic Designer Button that I'd tied with a Whisper White Baker's Twine bow. I attached the button to the card with two Glue Dots.

I'm pleased with the way the card turned out and it was fun to watch it "grow" organically.
