Mojo146 Celebrate you



Celebrating you... Isn't this what pregnancy all about?  Or is that just the baby shower when you get goodies for your new little bundle of joy?  I looked at the theme for this week's challenge of "Baby" at "Always Playing with Paper" and it got me thinking about what baby stamps and I realized I don't have that many that are "fun".  I wanted something whimsical to match this Basic Grey DP and found this stamp from a set from Hampton Arts.  (Sorry I don't know the set).  So I got all my goodies out and then I was stumped... what was I going to do for a layout and then I remembered this week's Mojo Monday layout that I absolutely love!!! OMGoodness!!! Reminder to self: make sure you look at the sketch again and not do it from memory!!!! I made a big booboo and messed up on the main panel.  It should have had a smaller section of different DP on the left hand side.  YIKES!!! I still love the card anyway.... OOPS!!!   I've watercolored a portion of the image with my Tombow Markers and the top has been paper pieced with some October Afternoon DP.  I love the look of sponging around an image and it's something I rarely do so I've been practicing at getting it just right (I'm not totally happy with how the sponging on this card turned out but oh well...).  The sentiment comes from Alli Miles' set called Take Three:Summer.  I'm loving this set for both the images and the sentiments. 

Have a great day!

Gorgeous card, Angela! I absolutely have to have my sketch book with me, even if I drew the darn sketch, because I never remember them the way they actually are. I love your take on the sketch ;)

Angela, this is perfect. Your color choices are fabulous and the way you highlighted the image in the focal cut out is perfect. I know you think the image wasn't perfect for the mojo sketch - but I think your card is perfect!
