Mojo and Apple Blossoms

As I looked around my stamp room the other day, I came to the realization that I have more then a few stamp sets from the new catalog that need to be broken in! Whenever I am in need of some creative inspiration, I know can always find it over at the Mojo Monday blog. It's been a while since I've made anything for the challenges, so it was time to crank up the ol' iPod and get crackin' on a new creation. 

I love the Apple Blossoms Hostess Set and thought this sketch would be the perfect opportunity to ink it up for the first time. For the color combo of Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz and Tempting Turquoise, I looked no further then the SU! Color Coach. I love, love, LOVE that little tool, as I probably never would have put those three colors together, ever! 
This is one "chunky" little card! Two things I'm absolutely infatuated with right now are: (lots and lots of) layers on my cards and (lots and lots of) Stampin' Dimensionals. It's pretty bad when every time I have seen my cat recently, he has those little papers from the backs of the Dimensionals stuck to his paws! After all was said and done with this one, I determined it will be a very tight squeeze in a regular-sized envelope and I'm 100% certain that this will require a wee bit of extra-postage. Oops, I might have gotten a little carried away!  HaHa!
