MOJO205 and Creative Elements

I must admit, I found this week's Mojo Monday sketch a little challenging. This is what I came up with and I hope you like it. I thought this would be a fun card to give a workshop host or hostess.

I played around with my Color Coach and decided I really liked the color combination of Calypso Coral, Early Espresso and Sahara Sand. You can never go wrong combining a light neutral, a dark neutral and a bright color. Try that formula next time you are at a loss for for a color scheme.

I stamped three flower images and cut them out and layered them, using a dimensional to separate the layers. I curled up the edges a little by hand to add a little more depth. I just love the Creative Elements Stamp Set. So many very different and versatile images. I especially like the large swirly image, which I used as a background stamp.

Love it! Think you did a great job capturing the sketch. I especially love the color combination & the layered flower. Great idea to turn up the edges to add some dimension.
