Mojo Monday Sketch 173

I have had a very productive day making cards and finishing projects today. However, I am still one card behind my goal of one card a day. This card makes #10, so I will either work on one more card for today, or just do it tomorrow - which is more likely as the day winds down.
So, after coloring and playing with new Sugar Nellie images, I wanted to do something completely different. No Valentine, No little girls - just plain and simple. The sketch over on the Mojo Monday Sketch Blog was perfect for this. I LOVE this sketch and it sets such a pretty scene. I had to decide what I wanted to do first and I started out thinking I wanted to do something bright - not blue, not purple or red or pink! In the end, I chose blue afterall - but not before I chose the brown. Aside from brown and pink, I think I like the brown and blue combination best.This stamp set is another new one out in the Occasions Mini and it is a must have in my book. Just think of all those friends you can be encouraging!! I also used this set to make some mini cards for one of my friends at Christmas time - she LOVED them. Afterall, what girl DOESN'T love chocolate??
I started with a light blue base and then added early espresso. On top of that I added some old DSP (that I just LOVE) and then added my center piece. The roses are from Wild Orchid craft - and since I hadn't used any today, I thought I needed to give them a little love.
I hope you enjoy my card - come back tomorrow - as I will give you all a rest from my postings - and see what I come back with.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Mojo Monday - Sketch
My Time To Craft - Chocolate

Enjoy your evening wherever you are in the world.

The pale lue with the brown is so classy & this looks just like a chocolate box - brilliant way of using that sketch. I thought your last project today would be about timed for my nocturnal visit to blogland with a mug of something hot & biscuits.
A very productive day for you indeed & impressive with a card a day.
