Mojo Monday Sketch 117 - A Card for Baby K
I have followed the Mojo Monday site for quite a while and love their sketches, but had not got around to entering into the fun until now!
Here's a card I made for the staff at school to sign. It's for our surfie Chaplain, Dave and his lovely wife, Suzie, who are expecting their first child just after Christmas.
To begin with, I wanted to use my So Saffron ribbon from the Ribbon Bundle promotion that SU ran a couple of months back, as I thought it would look cute on a gender neutral baby card. I then looked at the Color Coach and went from there.
Mojo Monday helped me with the sketch and it was plain sailing from then on! Once the colour and layout has been worked out, it's much easier to find the stamp set/s that you want to use.
I've heard a few people say to me lately that they can never seem to come up with ideas on how to make a card that they haven't CASED (copied and shared). I can recommend having a go at some of the challenges offered on-line as it really gets you thinking outside of the square and the Color Coach is also a great resource to own. I would never have thought of putting those colours together, but I'm pleased with how it turned out. My daughter said to me the other day, "If you're doing what you love at least one person is pleased". So true!
