MOJO400 ~ Storms ~

Good morning!  I'm excited to be playing along in this week's Mojo Monday challenge.  I decided to go with a nautical theme.  Normally I gravitate toward red, white and blue.  But this time, I opted to put a bit of a new spin on my theme.  Think pink, white and blue!

I started with a navy card stock base measuring 5.5 x 4.25 inches.  I added a slightly smaller pink card stock mat.  I chose a fun DP from Authentique's Seaside paper pad.  I stamped my flower images (Verve's Great Friend set) with a pale pink ink and then stamped the coordinating edging with a navy ink.  I hand trimmed each before placing.  I stamped the leaves (also found in the Great Friend set) with a soft green and fussy cut each one.  I created the sentiment panel by stamping the circular braid and sentiment (from the Strong Anchor set) in navy and using a small circular die to cut it out.  I arranged my flower spray and popped up the sentiment panel with dimensional foam.  Easy, peasy and clean!  Love those clean and simple projects!  What about you?  

And here's the MOJO400 sketch that started it all...

I love your pink and blue card. That's a color combination I hadn't thought of, but will have to try. Such a pretty card!!
