Mojo176 Round or Square

Stampin up mojo monday curly cute
My husband, Scott, has a birthday this week.  I combined Mojo176 with the opportunity to get a masculine card created for him.

This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 176 is based on one of my personal sketches.  Thanks, Julee T. for giving it a whirl.  I chose "square."  However, you get your choice.


  • Stampin up circle punches mojo monday Texture and clean graphics are always a good recipe for a "man" card.  Card base is 5 1/4" square.
  • Stampin' Up! Circle Punches in four different sizes were the foundation of the card.  My favorite part is the Basic Gray on Basic Gray texture.  Subtle but cool.
  • A Color Coach inspired the combination of Basic Gray, Cajun Craze and Baja Breeze.  A good masculine combo with a twist of retro! 
  • New to the Color Coach?  Click to watch my video tutorial.

COMING UP!   If my video cooperates today, my latest on-line video class will launch tomorrow.  Otherwise, I may have to fire the cameraman and producer (me–LOL).  The "Spring Flowers" projects are done and I can't wait to share.
