Mojo Monday Challenge #234

Today's post is all about Mojo Monday!  This week's sketch is #234 and there were two options:  Round or Square.  Here's the sketch:

I decided to create "outside the box" for me and I chose the Round sketch.  Without further ado ... here's my card:

I also made the decision to make this more of a "masculine" card.  I really need to build up my stash of cards for the men in my life.

I chose our Victory paper pack to work with. The coordinating colors are Outdoor Denim, Bamboo, Olive, Barn Red, and Chocolate.  I really like this paper.  Here's what the whole paper pack looks like:

Isn't it great?

I used our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to make my card.  The card measures 5".  Here is a list of the cuts:

Scalloped circle card base: p. 31, B1, card < Circle2 > at 5"
Circles:  p. 21, A1, < Circle1 > at 1", 1 1/4", 2 3/4", 3", 4 1/2", and 4 3/4"

I used our stamp set "4 My Friend" which is a great stamp set! It has a number of sentiments on it which means you can use it all-year round.   At only $17.95, it's well worth it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Would love to read your comments.  Head on over to Mojo Monday and add your card to their gallery!
