This was the perfect sketch challenge to help me get my creative “mojo” back.  I couldn’t wait to play with all the goodies I got in my start kit.  I did decide to use some retired DSP called Big Top Birthday.  I have tons of retired DSP leftover from a couple years ago when I was stamping all the time.  I have to control myself at the moment and not order everything in the catalog…especially the new Occassions catalog.

I did receive one of the new stamp sets and corresponding framelits from the Occasions catalog – Celebrate Today with the Balloon Framelits Dies.  I LOVE this bundle and what a great way to get both items together to save 15%.  I decided to play this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch 382 and really like how this card turned out.  It was a great opportunity to push me out of my comfort zone with respect to card size so I made a 3.5 x 5.5 size card.  It was easy to package it up to send out using Stampin’ Up’s envelope punch board (another goodie I got in my starter kit).

Ciao and Happy Stamping!
