Mojo Color Throwdown: Dance in the Rain



Good Morning Everyone,

Are you so excited for Friday as I am - this week has been swirling with intensity and activity as the kids are full fledged into school and the routine of the lazy days of summer suddenly has gotten discarded to the high paced schedule of school and after-school activities. I have been wanting to play along with the gorgeous colors from Swatch #109 from the lovely ladies at the Color Throwdown (I {heart} these cheery bright colors) and couldn't wait to play along with the lovely sketch #155 from Julee Tilman over at the Mojo Monday blog. Don't you love it when everyone goes to bed early and you have some crafting time carved out of the blissful silence :)))

I love these cheery colors and wanted to make a cheery card :) So I used one of my new fave Verve sets: Blue Skies from Verve Stamps for this card. This little notebook stamp just is SO beyond cute and the butterflies are simply so gorgeous - I copic-fied them and gave them a little glaze and added a little dew drop to the center and on the bottom I added a little trail of bling in the pink and yellows of the color challenge:

Here is a close up of the sentiment - isn't this sentiment so inspiring: "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." I couldn't resist adding some liquid pearls - trust me, I did try to not add them - but then, I couldn't hold back :))

Card Ingredients:
Ink: Memento Ink: Bahama Blue and Tuxedo Black
Accessories: copics, glaze, dimensionals, bling from Prima, dew drops, Adirondacks dimensional pearls, Spellbinders, ribbon from stash

I loved making this fun card - and simply loved both of these challenges! There is something about making a bright cheery card that leaves a bright cheery feeling in the heart :) And just a quick heads up for all you Verve Stamps Fans: the Harvest Blessings stamp set is 40% off now through September 30 while supplies last - that is one sweet stamp set!

Also as we get ready to head into the weekend, we are kicking off tomorrow's Cinema Saturday challenge with a little sneak peek snippet/clip from the movie over at the Cinema Saturday blog - hop on over and see if you can guess what movie it is going to be!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
