Mojo with Stampin' Up! Serene Salutations!

Have you taken advantage of the fabulous recruiting offer yet? Join Stampin' Up! for just £25 - seriously you won't get a better offer. More details here.

So on to today's card! Sharon is the accompanist for Colchester Military Wives Choir and we would be seriously lost without her so I wanted a card we could all sign for her birthday.

Mojo Monday is a Card Sketch Challenge blog which releases a new sketch every Monday so I am using it for inspiration.

I used a stamp from the Serene Silhouettes Stamp Set. It was coloured using Stampin' Write Markers (Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake & Old Olive) and stamped onto Very Vanilla card. The edges were sponged with Crumb Cake ink. This piece & a piece of Naturals Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper was then mounted on various card mats (Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake & Very Vanilla).  I used the sheet with the musical score on it as that seemed appropriate!

A second piece of Very Vanilla card was run through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, matted onto Elegant Eggplant card and a Crumb Cake card base. The flags are cut from a piece of the Elegant Eggplant dotty paper in the Regals Color Collections Paper Stack and the tails punches using the Hexagon Punch.  A piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon finished off the card.

This is the Mojo Monday sketch I used for inspiration - I love using sketches as a card base as I can just focus on the content!
