Mojo Monday ~ Springy Celebration

Good Morning Friends!

I just love this time of year! Waking up in the morning, the sun seems just a little brighter. Although it's still chilly out, the signs that spring is here are coming!

At this time of year, I love to go a bit brighter. I gravitate towards white... and this card gives the feel of spring, and maybe weddings?

I'm loving the richness of this card, and the fact that it's a little smaller than my usual card. It's 4 1/4" square, so this is most certainly one you would hand to someone, which would be perfect for the upcoming wedding season!

Measurements:
Base: 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", scored and folded in half at 4 1/4" (to form the card base)
Layer 2: 4 1/8" square whisper white
Layer 3: 4" square whisper white, embossed with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder
Layer 4: 4" x 3 1/4" whisper white, with the eyelet border bunch across the bottom
Layer 5: The new fabulous DSP coming out in APRIL, will be available THIS FRIDAY! 4 x 2 3/4"
Layer 6: 2 5/8" x 2 3/8" (note this is 1/8" larger than layer 7")
Layer 7: 2 1/2" x 2 1/4" whisper white (focal point)
Layer 8: Paper banner is 1/2" tall

Colors and Notes:
I used baja, not quite navy and old olive markers to stamp the images. For the main image, I inked my flower with baja and added not quite navy to accent. Then I huffed on the back of the stamp (to remoisten it with my breath) and stamped it on my white (layer 7).

I just love a good sketch challenge to get me going in the morning! Off to prep for my stamp club, which is this week!

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton

Wonderful card Selene. What is the name of the DSP you used for the background?

I just love the colors you used they match the paper beautifully.
