HB2U with Mojo Monday and Simon Says Stamp

What better way is there to start the New Year's card making than by getting some inspiration from my favourite sketch blog - Mojo Monday???

How about also combining it with a new challenge blog that is featuring MFT products in one of their challenge- Simon Says Stamp!! Wahooo!!!!  So much fun!!!

Now no one has to twist my arm to get our my MFT die-namics but this challenge also got me rummaging through my MFT stamps and button collection as well. 

So here are the inspiration challenges I used:

Mojo 326

Simon Says Stamp

This week the challenge is SOMETHING NEW ,,, New Year, New Job, New Baby, New Crafty Stash, New Home, Wedding ( new life) Retirement ( new life) ,, etc ,,,, 
We are showcasing My Favorite Things Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used :-)

And here is the card I created:

I loved the sketch that Julee came up with - I am a round card addict thanks to this talented ladies monthly "round or square" sketch challenges and I love this NEW one.  I have however, replaced the fishtail banner section with a bow.

My something NEW for this card comprised of three things, MFT buttons, MFT stamps and a paper pad from my stash that I have never used before. 

The papers are from Echo Parks Times and Season's 2 collection and the colour palette is a NEW challenge for me as I often opt for the soft pastel florally pinks.  This collection got me playing with stronger colours such as deep red and navy.

Whilst the MFT Dainty Bows die is not all that new to my collection on this card I decided to layer up the two different sized bows in the set and this was something NEW for me to try - and I love the effect!

The buttons on the bottom of the tag were from my NEWly acquired MFT button packs - just love them as you get so many different styles of buttons in each set.

The other MFT dies on the card were some of my favs as well - mini doily and a butterfly which I layered up.
