Mojo Monday 177

Here is my entry for the Mojo Monday 177 contest.  I like to encourage my girls to enter contests.  They are always nervous to enter.  Planning their projects, essays, or recipes get them excited for an entry.  They know they may not win, but they enjoy the process. They actually won a baking contest for our local fair this past October!  Lately, I've carved out 15 minutes every couple of days to do some scrapbooking and card making. While I encourage my girls to enter contests, I'll enter some myself.  :)  Just because the process is fun!
I am SO out of my comfort zone with this card. Collage designs are not really my "go to" layout. 
Supplies used:  
  • Stamps: SU Circle of Friendship, Nature Walk 
  • Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, SU DSP First Edition, SU DSP Botanical Gazette, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Night of Navy, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizazz, Tim Holtz Antique Linen
  • Basic Grey Brown Button, Mulberry Flower, SU Satin Ribbon Chocolate Chip, Linen Thread, MS Scalloped Circle Punch

  5. You have a nice eye for a Vintage-y look, all your elements work so nice while still keeping with the Mojo Sketch.

    Isn't it nice to carve this time out for carding - I find it gives me such a thrill and thats only 1/2 of the thrill, the other 1/2 is giving the card away.

    Thanks for showing, you have a wonderful week.
