Mojo Monday Challenge #108

Good Morning! Thank you for taking a few minutes out of your busy schedules to see what I have done.
I have 2 card clubs, and both are filled with wonderfully talented woman. OMG, these ladies keep you on your toes. They are quick learners, who have an eye for paper crafting. This weekend, both clubs will be meeting. This is also our Holiday Club Meeting. How fun!
So, today is the day that my Saturday card club meets. We have friendly challenges on a regular basis. So, for today's meeting, they had to create a card/scrapbook page using Mojo Mondays challenge #108 (that was the current challenge when we met in Oct.). This is what I came up with. I now regret not doing this sooner. I would have loved to submit my entry. Oh well. Live and learn, right?
I used all Stampin' Up! products. Here they are: Garden green card stock as the card base. I used a sheet of Kaleidoscope designer series paper for the pattern paper. (Same sheet of paper, I just flipped it over, to use another pattern.) I stamped the chandelier stamp from 'Grand Soiree' in Certainly Celery classic ink, randomly. Stamped the bird cage image from Chic Boutique in Night of Navy classic ink. I stamped the bird cage again in Tempting Turquoise classic ink on a scrap paper. Punched out the bird image with my 1/2" circle punch. Colored the bird with a Barely Banana marker. Adhered the colored bird to a pewter build-a-brad. Added the epoxy dome over it, and layered it over the original stamped image. I matted the stamped whisper white card stock onto Bashful Blue card stock, and them again on Garden Green card stock. I stamped the 'merci' from the Chic Boutique stamp set in Garden Green classic ink. I used the small oval punch to punch it out. I matted that onto a scrap of Garden Green card stock. (I hand cut this piece.) I used a scrap piece of ribbon I had from the Elementary Ribbon Originals.
Quick and easy. One thing I love about Mojo Monday layouts, is that, you can start with a color, and a stamp set, and it all works wonderfully well together!
Check back later today, I will post a picture of all the cards that were entered in our friendly challenge. I will also let you know who won!
Have a great Saturday! Oh, and don't forget to check back on Sunday. My Sunday Card Club has the same challenge this weekend, but with a different layout from Mojo Monday!
