Mojo Monday #299, Stampin’ Royalty #182 & Dynamic Duos #59

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is for three challenges – Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week is to create a round or square card using the following sketch:

Stampin’ Royalty have a challenge where all you have to do is add stripes. I’ve added these in the form of this Basic Gray striped DSP.

And at Dynamic Duos Challenge their challenge this week is to create a project using Basic Gray and one other colour of your choice – I’ve gone with Always Artichoke.

I’ve used my all-time favourite stamp set, French Foliage, which is about to retire with our 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up Catalogue.  Can you believe our new catalogue goes live on Tuesday? I can’t wait!!! I’ve teamed the leaves with some acorns from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called All Natural – I don’t even know how old it is, but it’s really old.  While I had that stamp set out, I’ve though I may as well use the sentiment from the same set. Here’s my card:

I had a couple of goes at making a card for this challenge and it was only when I reduced the amount of Melon Mambo I was using, could I make it work.  It’s only just on there too. Can you see it in the two-step stamping of the Stippled Blossom flower? In the end I was pretty happy with my card, but boy this colour challenge challenged me!
