Curtain Call Colour Challenge Act 17 with Mojo

This latest Curtain Call Colour Challenge really was a challenge for me. More Mustard is one of 'those' colours for me, if you get what I mean.... and I don't have any Going Grey ink, so was limited in what I could work with. My initial thoughts were to make a birthday card for Paul's Pop who turns 89 at the end of the month.

However, when I saw Mojo Monday sketch 129, I knew both challenges would work well together, and I don't think scallops and ribbons would have suited Pop. He's VERY traditional.

I'm not 100% happy with the stamped So Saffron background panel, but I felt it worked better than the So Saffron/More Mustard Haiku DSP I had there to begin with. The greeting from the SAB set Whimsical Words is mounted on a very thin border of So Saffron then on the More Mustard. I am happy with how the flowers from Eastern Blooms work with the Haiku DSP in the larger panel though.
This one may make its way down to Luana's godmother yet, I'm not quite sure. She's more of a blue person, so will see how I feel on Monday when the post office opens....

Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Whimsical Words (SAB)
Card: More Mustard, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Going Grey
DSP: Haiku
Ink: So Saffron, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip
Other: Scallop Border punch, 5/16" Jumbo brad, Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon, paper piercer

What a great card, Natasha! You rocked both challenges:) Thanks for playing the Curtain Call!

By the way, every time the picture of you and your daughter pop up on your blog, it just makes me sweet!

Oh Natasha it's stunning. I'm not a fan of more mustard either but that colour combo is great.
Well done.
