I had lots of inspiration today, starting with this splashy new Mojo Monday Sketch (MOJO185) by Julee Tilman.


  • Stampin up mojo monday birthday card something to celebrate More inspiration came in the form of a fashion catalog (Garnet Hill).  I loved the mix of color and softness of the polka dot dress.  Fun, yes?
  • The Stampin' Up! Fun Flowers Bigz L Die.  I love it and never anticipated how much paper art mileage I would get from it.
  • The wide scallop (Rose Red) was created with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die.  It's still available as part of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Carry Over List. 
  • Adding Perfect Plum Polka Dot Designer Paper to the envelope flap adds a coordinating polish.  Paper Snips make navigating the curves a snap!
