Dreams du Jour-Mojo Monday #75

Well, my Mojo doesn't seem to happen on Monday, but here is my creation for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! I've had the idea since Monday, just didn't get it done until tonight!

Another creation using the great new DSP paper from SU! This card uses DSP (Designer Series Paper) from the Parisian Breeze Specialty set. It's not your average DSP! It's textured, cover-weight card stock. Fun fun! Colors in the paper are Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip & Kraft.

My card base is Chocolate Chip CS. That color has found a permanent spot beside my cutter!! Next layer is the flower print for the background. Next on the right side, a Baha Breeze CS strip punched on the right side with the Eyelet Border topped with a piece of dotted DSP. Center layer has a Kraft background piece, with 2 pieces of DSP. The dots again, and the reverse side of the dots- a Chocolate print., The only stamping on this card is the Dreams image, done in Basic Brown on Whisper White, colored with a blender pen using Baja Breeze & Sahara Sand ink. Accent layer on the Dreams image is again Chocolate chip. The brads are from the pretties kit. If I had it to do again, I would do a few less, and maybe a different brad (? vintage?). These don't lay very flat-that's just the way they are! Great for flower centers and such, not so great when you want flat!

Last accent on the card are flowers from the Pretties kit. I colored both with an Aqua pen and classic ink-Baja Breeze & Sahara Sand. Ice brad in the center in the light blue color.

Over all, I like the look! Lots of layers, but this paper blends wonderfully together (as to ALL of our DSP packs!)

Happy weekend all!
