Mo's DP2 Challenge - Straight From The Heart

Good morning!  It's Thursday and you know that means it's time for another fun Mo's Challenge.  Today is bittersweet for me as this is my last post as a member of Mo's Challenge DT.  It's hard to believe that six months flew by so quickly!  I feel like it was just yesterday that I joined the DT.  I sure will miss working with the wonderful ladies on the team and I am grateful for the opportunity to have designed alongside these super-talented designers for the past six months.   You all know I love Mo's images, so you will definitely still be seeing lots of Mo's creations here on my blog.

OK.  On to this week's challenge.  The theme is "straight from the heart".   Whatever this means to you, as long as you use a Mo's image, you are good to go.

Here is my card for the challenge:


I started with a card base of SU Soft Sky and layered patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy 6x6 pad.   My sweet image is Jack and Ginger from Mo's Digital Pencil.  You can find it in Mo's store here.  I printed it on Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with my Copic markers.  

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  I thought it was perfect for the theme.  I added some trims from a couple of Webster's Pages Trim Cards (sorry, I forget which ones).  A few Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card.

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday #213 for my layout:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit Mo's Challenge blog and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you'll join in this week!  Don't forget, Mo gives away a $5 GC to her store for every 25 entries in each week's challenge!  You can't win if you don't enter!

Have a great day and see you soon!

  25. Carla, you will certainly be missed by the DT team I am sure of it!
    You do absolutely beautiful work and they weren't fortunate to have you too. This card being no exception, I love everything about it. The sweet story behind the image of course, along with the colour palette you chose, the papers, embellishments, the layout and last but certainly not least the sweet sentiment. You must be very proud, if not you should be :)S
