Happy Monday!

Happy Monday friends! I hope that you are all having a great day! I've had a nice productive day of cleaning, laundry, and finally some stamping time! I've been meaning to play along with my dear bloggin' buddy Mary's PPA challenge! She and her 'pals' have started a challenge blog and this week, their first challenge is a color challenge.

The colors for this weeks challenge are Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, and Chocolate Chip. I've just finished my card for this challenge! I also used the Mojo Monday sketch for my card today, MOJO98.

I pulled out my Circle Circus stamp set...it is SO one of my new favorite things! I stamped a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Chocoalte Chip, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay ink and 3 of the fun circles from the stamp set. For my main image layer, I pulled out my Circle Scissor Plus cutter..LOVE it! I used it for both my Wisper White and Chocolate Chip circles.

I used Melon Mambo for my card base. I layered a piece of Melon Mambo dsp onto a layer of Chocolate Chip cardstock and attached it to my card. I used a strip of sticky strip to attach my Bermuda Bay ribbon down the left side of my card. **To get a solid Bermuda Bay ribbon rather than polka-dot, I just used the "back" of the ribbon**. For my little bow, I just made a circle out of a piece of the polka-dot ribbon and then attached it with some sticky strip. My Button Latte white button was attached with a mini glue dot. **Don't forget you can earn the Button Latte set of button free with 35$ worth of "Growing Up! stamps from the current Catalog! Here is the link to show you the details!

After the base of the card was completed, I attached my circle layer. The sentiment was my finishing touch. The 'hey there!' sentiment comes from the Really Retro stamp set. I stamped it with Melon Mambo ink and used my small oval punch to punch it out. I then used my large oval punch to get a Chocolate Chip layer and then my scallop oval punch for my last oval layer.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you make today a great one!
