Diva Mojo!

I am trying to get back into the swing of posting as much as possible again. I was lucky enough today to come up with double the mojo. Diva Mojo! The Diva Coffee Break Design Team Challenge this week is to create something using the colors of Kraft, Always Artichoke, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue and then add in some Whisper White or Very Vanilla.
Okay, so as I write this, I see I forgot to add some Bashful Blue. I was feeling so good about my card, too! LOL! Oh well! That will just be our little secret! ;) So, I had my colors and now needed a layout. I printed off Julee's mojomonday91 sketch. She has beautiful sketches! This sketch seemed a little different, but not complicated. The next step was to choose a stamp set. Since I don't have any designer series paper with these darker colors of Night of Navy and Almost Artichoke, I knew I would have to create some sort of background on the plain cardstock. You really can't see it in this picture, but I used the same main image and stamped it in Versamark on the Night of Navy so that it wasn't quite so plain. Once again, I reverted back to the Fresh Cuts stamp set for this adorable sentiment. It fits so nicely in the small oval punch!

Stamps: Friends 24/7, Fresh Cuts
Ink: Versamark, Almost Artichoke
Cardstock: Kraft, Night of Navy, Almost Artichoke, Whisper White
Accessories: Small Oval, Large Oval and Wide Oval punches, Scallop Oval punch, Kraft cordoroy brad, Kraft taffeta ribbon, dimensionals

What do you think? Why don't you play along with us? These are gorgeous colors to work with and uploading your creation is sooooo easy using Mr. Linky! Make a quick stop over to the Diva Coffee Break Designs blog and see what the other Diva Design Team members have created for your inspiration.

Have a wonderful hump day!
