Color Challenge 175/Mojo46

I made this card to accompany my check to Jody (if Jody is reading this, I apologize that you saw it before you got it) for sticky stuff purchases I made. If you have not gotten in on one of these, you need to! Head on over to Confessions of a Ribbon Addict and get yourself some sticky stuff for cheap. She always has some sort of share going on.

Todays card was a combination of the Mojo Monday sketch posted on Poetic Artistry and the color challenge posted on Splitcoaststampers.

I added photo corners in each corner to add a little more of the almost amethyst into the design. The colors are a little light in this photo, but it is wild wasabi, so saffron and almost amethyst. I also accidentally changed the sketch a little bit because I did the bottom strip across the whole card, rather than just in a rectangle at the bottom (I noticed after I had sewn it down of course), so hopefully you can all just let that slide and forgive me on that one. Sophie's face is popped up as well as the flower is popped up one level higher than that -- paper tole style. Sentiment is by Hanna Stamps - Things Hanna Would Say. Thanks for visiting! Hope to see you back really soon -- I plan to do a blog candy giveaway for my 500th post and would love to have you participate in that!!!

Congratulations Amanda!! I didn't even know you were expecting!

Wow, funny how a little thing like finishing master's coursework-getting students' final grades in-preparing for an overseas move- actually moving-looking for a new place to live and finding it can cause one to be out of the loop there. LOL

Good to be back on American soil though - I'm HOME!!

Congrats again on your happy news!
