Blue Jean Baby! Mojo Monday 413

Today's card was inspired by the Mojo Monday 413 sketch

Everywhere I turned today I saw decorated blue jean pockets, so I thought they would be the perfect detail to this fun card sketch.  For this card I used the wider tag from the gift card envelope & trims thinlets to make the pockets, then added pearls and star sequins for the pocket embelishments.  The vellum is from the new Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack, this vellum is one of those must buy items from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!  The colors are whisper white, night of navy and soft sky.  Thanks for stopping by :)

Hearth & Home Thinlits

PPA 263 Color Challenge & Mojo Monday 410

Today's card is a dual challenge card for the PPA 263 Color Challenge and Mojo Monday 410.  For this card I used whisper white, pear pizzazz, rich razzleberry and tempting turquoise card stock along with the Boys Will Be Boys stamp set from Stampin' Up!  The sentiment is punched out using the word window punch and layered over the washi label punch.  I think I will be giving this card to my nephew, one of the best kids ever!
