Mojo 149

As part of my initial I MUST HAVE IT ALL purchase(s) from the new SU catalog on July 1st, I bought the Elegant Soiree papers. What's not to love? Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake (or in my world: Kraft, since I have a TON of it), Soft Suede, Vanilla ... And the patterns? LOVE!

I have had pieces of the papers cut up and arranged on a Kraft Crumb Cake card base for a few days now. I keep adding to it, and adding to it, and not loving it, so it gets set aside and added to the next day, and so forth.

But today I saw this week's Mojo sketch:

... and I knew what had to be done. I had to take all the parts-is-parts I had and add to them! Yes, I needed MORE, MORE, MORE!

So if you suffer from vertigo, or if you have issues with too much cra ... stuff piled onto one card, just look away now. You have been warned.


Here you go:

ACK! I KNOW! Busy, busy, busy. But OMG, just look at those luscious patterns and colors! And except that mine is A2 instead of square, I even pretty much stuck to the sketch. Amazing.

Recipe: Paper - Kraft Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree DSP; Stamps - image from Friends Never Fade, sentiment from All Holidays; Ink - Soft Suede; Other - Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon, Curvy Label punch, Square punch.

A little over-the-top maybe, but I'm okay with that. I got to use all those papers on one card! Yay, me!

Now that this is out of my system and off my work space, I'm going back in for some more. I'm playing with canvas and gel medium and pieces of a map and ... well, I have no idea what's going to happen, but it will be a mess, and FUN!

Thanks for stopping by!
