Color AND Mojo Challenge

Gosh, I am on a challenge ROLL! I got to sneak in a little time to throw a quick card together, even though my son was home sick from vomiting...YUCK!!! Ever had a "Calgon, take me away," kind of day?? Today was mine! Anywho, I combined a couple challenges...Splitcoast's Color Challenge #208 and the latest Mojo Monday challenge. The colors to use were Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, and Pink Passion. Owww! That pink passion is BRIGHT! The layout to follow was this:


I used another stamp set from H&M Stamps called Angelic Moments. Is it at all obvious I've thoroughly enjoyed playing with these new stamps?! :)

I actually spent too much time photographing this card. There are just so many details that one picture could capture and another couldn't. I settled on this one where you can't see the dry embossing on the white layer very well. Be sure to click it to enlarge it and you should see it fine. :)

I stamped the Angel on watercolor paper in Onyx Black Versafine, and watercolored her with the Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Pink Passion, and Blush Blossom reinkers. I added pink bling to her wings AND dazzling diamonds for good measure, LOL. I didn't want a simple ribbon treatment, so I totally copied the idea from my good friend Rosie, to criss-cross the ribbon. You can see my inspiration here! The Chocolate and Pink designer paper is from the Sultry pack by Basic Grey. The chocolate and kiwi dsp is from the Bella Rose dsp pack.

Thanks so much for looking! A blingy Angel is there for you. :)

So sorry to hear that your son is sick. Hope he feels better soon!

Your card for the two challenges is wonderful! I really like the bling on the angels wings and the way you laced up the vertical piece going up the front of your card!
