Do you ever get stumped for a fresh card layout idea? I think we all do from time to time. One of the places I know I can always find a great solution is the Mojo Monday Card Sketch Blog/Challenge. Julee and friends always manage to create fabulous sketches week after week. This week marked the 400th sketch - what a milestone!
The first week of the month is always a contest, but this week Julee announced a special contest as well. She'll be adding two new designers to her team of talented artists to help bring the sketches to life every week. With so many talented entries, my chances are probably slim to none. But, hey! It never hurts to try and it's still fun to play along.
- The new Neutrals Color Collection Paper Stack (pad of 12" x 12" patterned paper) includes gold and silver sheets with metallic ink. Taking a cue from the sketch, I chose the script design in silver.
- Looking at the sketch, I immediately thought of a paper doily for the partial circle. TIP: Save the leftover doily snippets to use as an accent layer on future projects.
- The sentiment, from the Work of Art stamp set, proved to be just the right size in proportion and complimented the script background paper. I embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder to coordinate with the metallic background paper.
- The stem image (Flowering Flourishes stamp set) is stamped in Mint Macaron, one of five new In Colors that debuted on June 2.
- For a beautiful pop of color, I added a resin flower (In Color Blossom Accents) and Dotted Lace Trim in Watermelon Wonder, another new In Color. The lace trim is so pretty and delicate (swoon!) and one of my favorite new products.
- For an elegant envelope treatment, I cut a liner from the striped silver metallic patterned paper using the Envelope Liner Framelits and the Big Shot.
Congratulations to Julee on her milestone achievement. I'm so glad she took the leap with her "little" idea all those years ago!
