In Stamping Mode

Mojo Challenge #84

It's that time again! Another mojo challenge and the need for me to do a Stampin' Up! only card. I honestly start feeling a bit guilty if I don't do at least one of these a week. It's like I'm cheating on Stampin' Up! or something...silly, I know! lol Anyway, I did thoroughly enjoy making this card. Probably mostly in part because I did about 75% of it at my friend Rosie's house using all of her supplies. *grin* It's always fun to stamp in good company and even a bigger bonus if said company provides all the supplies! WOOOO!

After seeing the cover of the latest Stampin' Success magazine, I just knew I wanted to use purple. Such a neglected color, right? So I grabber her Tea Party dsp and paired it with Perfect Plum... a color not in the actual dsp, but looks great with it anyway! Like that matching envie? :)

Ok, I'm off to tuck the kiddos into bed and then watch who will become the top 4 on Idol. Any bets as to who's leaving tonight? :)

Thanks so much for stopping in and getting, "in stamping mode!"
