Baby Mojo Joy...


Sorry for the long absence! I've had a crazy-busy few weeks with study, work and a bunch of other stuff. Today was my first opportunity in ages to make something just because I wanted to! I combined this week's Mojo sketch with the Colour Q challenge to create this...

I used Verve's Tag Time and To the Moon sets to create this vintage-feel baby card. The papers are from Bo Bunny's Gabrielle collection, which coordinated nicely with the Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride colours in the colour challenge. The tag was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink, with the sentiment in Calypso Coral. I stamped the elephant on Blushing Bride card (twice) and some coordinating DSP then did some paper piecing. I cut a slit along the bottom of the frame so I could pop the elephant through so she can pop out of the frame. I added some Certainly Celery ribbon and matching pearls as well as a punched ribbon strip of Certainly Celery card, stitched with linen thread (love this effect!).

That's all for now... Thanks for stopping by!
