Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge # 144

Hi All. Today's post is for a sketch challenge from Mojo Monday - The Blog.

I played around with this sketch and the colors for this card and came up with 2 different but very similar cards. For the first card I used Crumb Cake as the base, and I really like how it looks with the Regal Rose. It's funny, I never really Crumb Cake (formerly known as Kraft) before, but now that it is one of the core SU! colors in the Neutrals Collection I'm using it a lot more, and I really like it.

Stamps: With All My Heart and Vintage Labels
Paper: Crumb Cake, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla, Bride Speciality Paper, Sending Love Specialty Paper (from the Occasions Mini Catalog)
Ink: Regal Rose, Bashful Blue Early Espresso and Crumb Cake
Punches: Extra Large Fancy Flower and Curly Label
Embellishments: Basic Jumbo Grommets, Soft Subtle Brads, Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
Accessories: Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack, Stamping Sponges, Dimensionals and SNAIL

I made my own designer series paper by stamping on the Crumb Cake base with Crumb Cake Ink. The Bride Specialty Paper is white, so I sponged over it using a Stamping Sponge and Regal Rose Ink, then wiped off the excess ink so that there is still some shine in the design on the paper I give the look of depth I sponged the edges all of the card stock and DSP.

The second card is very similar, I basically used different colors, and a few different embellishments.

With all My Heart, Vintage Labels
Paper: Marina Mist, Bride Specialty Paper, Regal Rose, Sending Love Specialty Paper, Very Vanilla
Ink: Marina Mist, Regal Rose
Punches: Extra Large Fancy Flower, Curly Label, Boho Blossoms and 1/2" Circle
Embellishments: Rich Regal Brads, 5/8" Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, 5/16" Jumbo Brads
Accessories: Stampin Sponges, Dimensionals, SNAIL, Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack

I'm not sure if you can enter more than one card to the Mojo Monday challenge, so I have to decide which one of the two I like best. I would love from eveyone on their thoughts which card I should enter.

I love them both and I especially love that you showcased two different cards using the same template! If I had to choose one (and it is a HARD decision), I think my vote for the challenge is the Marina Mist card. I love the paper piercing designs in the corners and the brads at the bottom.

Good Luck!
