Thanks for Being Awesome

It's always a treat to read the Mojo Monday posts.  Julee's cards and sketches provide such inspiration.  I was inspired to search my stash for a pretty floral panel after seeing the gorgeous paper collection she featured his week.

My card also includes Altenew's Garden Picks dies.  I have been cutting them from larger paint chips to try out color combinations and am having such fun!  (Getting funny looks from the mister when collecting lots of paint sample cards at Home Depot is an added bonus!!)

The other crafty "experiment" included is the use of Reverse Confetti's Grid Stitched Tag.  It's a rectangle, and I wanted it to be square.  After cutting it once, I put a part of it back in the die and cut again.  It's an old but good trick.  The fun surprise was that the second cut caused some cool double stitching.  I'll definitely play with this some more.

Thanks so much for visiting,
