Mojo Monday 236 - Card made with scraps - Cricut Art Philosopohy Cartridge

Hi you lovely bloggers!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I am so grateful for all of your love and support.  I appreciate your lovely compliments on my blog.  Your cards and projects are such an inspiration to me.  I couldn't do this without all of you.  Knowing there are others who see my creations and who may be inspired by what I have created is what makes this so much fun.  I appreciate each and every one of you and your creations. 

I decided to try Mojo Monday challenge today as well as several others.  Using scraps of paper was a little more challenging than I thought.  I also decided to include the color scheme for PPA Color Challenge.  This is probably the most unusual card I have ever made  with the color scheme and the unusual combinations.  I love combining several challenges into one.  I think it involves a little more creativity and makes it so much more fun.  I only did one view of my card today since there isn't really any specific details that need to be shown.  Click on the card to see a closer view.



The sketch used to make this card is really a great sketch.  I am sure I will use it again.  I can think of several ways to make a card using this sketch.  Enjoy!!




I used my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to create the flower.  I love this cartridge.  There are so many things on this cartridge that it is incredible.  I use it every time I create something.  It has such a wide variety.  I feel it is an absolute necessity to have this cartridge if you own a Cricut.  I own a lot of punches; but they are only one size.  I can try several sizes before I get the size I am looking for and this cartridge allows me to do that easily and effortlessly.  Click here to order your Art Philosophy Collection.

I just purchased my Cricut Expression in December and it was the best investment I have ever made for my scrapbooking and cardmaking.  The second best investment I made is to join CTMH as a consultant.  The $300 in free products you receive for just $99 is a fantastic investment.  The products are high quality and unique, the friendships, the team I belong to, the free training and the discounts are all just part of this great company.  There is so much more that I can't explain it all here.  Click here to see the great free products you receive when you join my team.  Scroll down on that page to see the products and the discounted add on products you can purchase as well. 

Supplies used for this card:

Patterned paper: Scraps left over from other projects cut to 1 in strips.
Hot pink cardstock: Recollections
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug machine with "The Paper Studio" flourish
Flower and layer: CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge - cut at 2 1/2 inches
Ribbon: Lt Pink 3 - Offray ribbon - purchased at Joann Fabrics
Bling: K & Company (hot pink)
Foam Mounting tape for the flower

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I hope you enjoyed my latest creation.  It is a little unusual; but I don't think it turned out too bad for just using scraps of paper.  Have a fantastic week and keep creating those wonderful cards and other projects.
