Blogger's Crushed Mambo Chips Mojo Style!

Hmmm, sounds like a recipe huh? But no -- it's my Blogger's challenge for this week, combined with the MoJo Sketch Challenge from Monday! The Blogger's challenge was a color challenge this week--we are to use the colors

Melon Mambo
Crushed Curry
Chocolate Chip
and a Neutral if desired.

the MoJo sketch for the week is..

And then of course my card.


I struggled with this a bit the night I started it so I set it aside and left it till this morning and it came together in a few minutes! Sometimes you just have to walk away and come back fresh. I really like the card now!

I used the adorable level on hostess set called Out of the Box. Such a darling little set.



Supplies:

Stamps: Out of the Box, Nursery Necessities
Paper: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade DP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo
Other: Circle Scissors Plus, scallop circle punch, circle punch, word window punch, Final Press embossing folder, brads, marker

Be sure to check out the other players by clicking on the logo on the lower right of my sidebar!

TGIF!
Mary Jo

This is adorable! I don't usually do color challenges but if I combined it with a sketch challenge it might be okay. Thank for sharing!

I love, love, love how you used the colors with the sketch! I'm not a big Crushed Curry fan, but I love how you have it in your card. It's gorgeous!
