Daring Adventure ~ MM291

It's Friday and I have a Mojo Monday card to share with you!  Lately I've been making lots of floral cards, so this was a fun departure for me.  I pulled out my new Epic Day paper from the This and That collection and paired it with the Mojo Monday sketch.

The designers at Mojo Monday are awesome!  Every time I use their sketches I am pleased with the end result.  :)   This week it is round or square.  I considered making another oval card, like the one I showed yesterday on my blog, but I thought the square worked better for the masculine feel I was going for.
Don't you just love the extra wide banners?  I used lots of retiring SU products on my card: Scallop Square die, Color Spritzer, Not Quite Navy ink, Daring Adventure (sniff, sniff... this is a GREAT stamp set for masculine cards.  I use it all the time for the 12-18 year old crowd)  and the silver button I used may be retiring with the end of the Spring Mini. 

This card may be going in my OWH box.  I made it with Operation Write Home in mind.  Not sure about the button though.  I felt the card needed it, but I wonder if it makes the card too bulky.  I may play around with this design a bit more, but I can easily make 5 or 6 of these cards to send in.

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

Lovely card Heather. I love the Epic Day DSP. In fact I think this is the first year I have felt like the DSP was all fabulous. This stamp set was also one of my favorites and I am not selling it. It is so versatile. And I love the Helen Keller quote, have used it often for graduates. Got kind of behind on blog surfing.
