Mojo 145

I think I've come to the conclusion that I really don't like using patterned paper.  I feel like I have the hardest time with designed paper and especially if it's striped or has big flowers.  Oh well.  I know it's me.  Perhaps, I just need to attempt to use it more often to feel more comfortable with it.  Here is my submission for Mojo Monday 145:

I spent a long time on this card.  I knew what paper I wanted to use, but when it came time to add the three elements to the front, I worked and worked and worked.  I'm still not sure about it.  However, I love the colors.  Here is my recipe:

 Stamps:   Friends Never Fade, Elements of Style
Paper:     Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzaz, Chocolate Chip, Greenhouse Gala
Ink:         Peark Pizzaz, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip

The flower in the oblong layer is actually the smaller stem/bud of the entire flower stamp from Friends Never Fade.  I love the way it looks all by itself.  The pineapple looking stamp is from Friends Never Fade also.  I really like the way it looks and plan on using it as much as possible. 

You'll have to let me know if you think it's too busy.  Sometimes I think it is and other times, I like it.

I hope tomorrow that I'll have a different challenge ready to be able to post.

Have a wonderful day!
