Mojo Monday #74, Friend

I have been dying to do another Mojo Monday for weeks. I just can't think of were the time has gone. I am so happy so share with you a mojo card today.. I just got this stamp new set
 "Fifth Ave Floral" and had to play. When I was browsing through the newest catty I noticed that they had used the BLEACHING TECHNIQUE on this set.. You can find color photo examples of this technique on page 104 of the "Idea book & Catalog" from Stampin' Up. If you would like to receive one for FREE come over here. When you place an order on-line Stampin' Up will send you 1 FREE catalog until the end of April. That a $12.00 value. Just think of all the inspiration you could get from this catty.

To start I really wanted to use Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Close to Coco. I decided to stamp my own floral back ground paper so I could just play around with the color with this new set. I did us some of the coordinating paper as an accent (the Kiwi Kiss houndstooth pattern)The Designer Series Paper or "DSP"coordinates perfectly with this set as well. It's GORGEOUS! It's called  "Urban Oasis" You can find it on page 161 on the catty or here on -line. I will be playing with my new paper again really soon.

Off to finish my SU taxes...... Lets just say I spend more that I make.
