Whatever Challenge Wednesday -- Mojo Monday 145

Whatever Challenge Wednesdays features a challenge from the blogosphere, chosen randomly. Here's our pick for this week:

Hi everyone,

Today, we're playing with Mojo Monday's #145 sketch:

I chose round! I also decided to rotate the sketch to fit the main element on the card, being the #3 (for 3 years old!)...

I went into my SU retired stuff box (which is getting heavier by the minute since we've only got 1 day until the new catty!). Most of the elements and DSP comes from the Special Delivery Boy Simply Scrappin' from 2 years ago. But since the color Wild Wasabi is coming back on July 1st, I went for it as my main color. And I just happened to have some of those scallop circle note cards from then as well and that was the base of my card.

The number 3 on the measuring tape self-adhesive die-cut is peaking out the star and I thought that was a nice touch. I struggled a bit with all the elements but in the end, I made it work. The last touches I added were the faux-stitching on the Wild Wasabi circle and the little die-cut Apricot Appeal strip. It just ties everything together. The sentiment is from the French version of On Your Birthday stamp set, Pour ton anniversaire.

Find a challenge and go play with your stamps! CeeCee
