Mojo Monday/Color Throwdown - Aviary

Happy Wednesday everyone, we've made it half way through the week!  It's hard to believe that in less than two weeks my kids will be headed back to school.  The card I have for today was created with the help of two challenges, the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and the Color Throwdown Challenge.  I used the stamp sets Aviary, Curly Cute and Pretty Pattern back ground stamp for this card.  I'm convinced that I must be bow challenged because I struggled to get this bow looking half way decent on the front of my card (and yes its a miracle that I can tie my shoes, lol).  I didn't have the color Pear Pizzazz for the color challenge so I went with Old Olive instead.

Supplies: Aviary, Curly Cute, Pretty Pattern BG, Square punches, Scallop border punch, Ribbon, Button


Thanks for your visit!

So stinkin' cute! Great job on the challenges! Oh, and I have no idea why you think you are bow challenged... it looks great to me! Or you could always get a bow easy... :D
