Mojo Monday #520


I had so much fun creating this card!  A great sketch combined with great papers equals easy peasy!  My card is created with the Into the Wild Paper Collection by Close To My Heart.  The coordination of colors means you can't go wrong.  I paired the gorgeous papers with the Sketch Challenge at Mojo Monday. Julee is so awesome, she even gives you  measurements for her sketches!  You can easily add or subtract items to make the sketch your own.  Here is the original sketch design-


I love the fun mix of elements on my card....and they all came from one paper pack!  Into the Wild is one of my current favorite paper packs.  As a mom of three boys....I know it will get a lot of use.  I know I just mentioned yesterday that I was going to stop hoarding paper.....but I simply must put a few packs of this one away for future scrapbook pages!  Here is a look at the full paper pack-

I paired the paper collection with the August Stamp of the Month, From Me to You, for my sentiment.

Did you know that you can add the Stamp of the Month to your collection for only $5 with a qualifying purchase!  This set has 38 stamps....what a bargain!

Design Tip: My trees and tag are cut from the Into the Wild papers and used as embellishments.  I first inked my Happy Stamp in New England Ivy ink and then faded into Sapphire ink.  You can easily add multiple colors of ink to one stamp, just start with the lighter shade first!
