Thoughts & Prayers

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE - Krafty Saffron Nights. I included Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Faux Burnt Edges bc the colors just called for it to be done again, LOL. My layout is from MONDAY'S MOJO # 93. I just finally bought this set after everyone else is tired of using it and the challenges were calling to me to pick it up and get it dirty, so I did. My kraft layer was embossed with the negative side of the leafy branches folder inked with night of navy. Love how that turned out. I stamped the tree image in so saffron on white then sponged with so saffron, creamy caramel, choc chip and black. I stamped the phrase in night of navy on so saffron then sponged the edges with creamy caramel, choc chip and black. The sentiment was stamped in night of navy then sponged with the same colors as the tree panel which were both also trimmed with decorative scissors. The night of navy mat was cut with Nesties Deckled edges. I tried to color my ribbon with my copic so saffron match but I think it turned out a little brighter than I wanted. Oh Well. I was thinking I had lost my MOJO since I was not liking what I was making lately but I like this one. Do you?
