Scatter Kindness Diva Inspirations Hop

Hi friends!  It's a brand new Monday, which means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  Plus, it's the 10th of the month, so the Divas are hopping with our monthly Diva Inspirations Blog Hop and Challenge!  I'm the first stop on the hop, so settle in and let's get hopping.


My first impressions from the inspiration graphic were the beautiful, bright colors and the polka dots. The polka dot dishes made me think of my favorite cafe creme cup, which is black with white polka dots all over, so I knew I was going to pull in some black accents and a whole lotta dots.  And what goes better with dots than a sentiment about confetti?

I cut all my papers first, pulling the pink and yellow from the Sending Sunshine pad from Echo Park and the aqua paper from a Lawn Fawn pad, then matting with black, offsetting on the circles for a bit of a fun confetti look, and adding more dotty accents with a white gel pen.  The flower and sentiment are both from the Kindness Matters  stamp set and I fussy cut the flowers, adding a pearl brad to the center.  I added rhinestone star clusters in place of the pennant on the sketch, then layered everything together into one happy little card.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Your next stop is Charmaine's blog.
Read on for all the challenge and hop details.
