Mojo and Make it Monday

Hello, Tuesday. I have a combined challenge card today. Heather Jensen and I were talking last week and decided to play along together with the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge. Yep, you read that right......Papertrey Ink.

If you  have been around my blog long enough, then you know that I was a HUGE fan of all things PTI. I used to follow every release. Well when I joined the MFT design team over three years ago all my "extra" stampy time was dedicated to MFT. My love for paper, stamps and dies shifted and I was ok with that. 

Well since June, I have really enjoyed discovering new stamps and re-discovering the companies I once loved. I have not bought anything new from PTI in years, so I had opened my drawer and took a gander at what I had to work with. Love "shopping" from my own stash. 

This week's challenge was to Stamp Random Background patterns. Seemed easy enough. I am just mad at myself for not taking a photo of my background panel before I put my card together. 

Not sure you'll be able to tell from my photo, but I used a totally unexpected stamp set for my background. I used the Wise Owl set. It had a great mix of little images (mostly the different eye ball images) that I could stamp here and there. I used Aqua mist, Summer Sunrise inks from PTI and a red and black from MFT. 

I was following the Mojo Monday sketch for this card too, so I used a few other PTI products to complete my card. This tag might just be my all time FAVORITE tag shape. It's the Tag Sale #5 die and I cut some of the Fancy Pants Good Life papers. 

That flower is from Hello, Friend stamp set. I used the matching die to cut it out. It's the Friendly Flower die. Isn't it fun to have a die to match, that makes perfect cuts??

I can't wait to see what Heather comes up with for this challenge. I know it will be gorgeous. Be sure to hop over to her blog to see her take on the Make It Monday challenge. 

Thanks so  much.
