Color Throwdown #123 and Mojo Monday Challenges

I used the colors from Color Throwdown and the sketch from Mojo Monday to make this fun card. The great hosts of the Color Throwdown even gave us free paper to download using the colors they had chosen! I used a new set of stamps from Raisin Boat, stamping right on the patterned paper and also on an embossed strip. The sentiment strip seemed to need something too, so I punched out a mini-border with my new punch from ek success. My New Year's resolution is to use more patterned paper in my cards. I rarely do, yet have a ton of it:) Course I could pick something like lose weight, but why go there:)

Stamping smiles, Karen
